The  KWIC  INDEX  TO  THE  GOVERNMENT 

of  Ontario  is  a  fast,  comprehensive 
reference  to  the  programs  and  services 
of  the  Ontario  Government.  If  you  take 
a  few  minutes  to  read  “Tips  on  Using 
the  kwic  index”  on  page  vi,  you  will 
find  some  useful  information  about  how 
to  use  the  book.  Information  is 
organized  under  simple  headings  or 
“key  words”  most  commonly  used  by 
the  public  in  their  day-to-day  dealings 
with  the  government. 

The  kwic  index  is  widely  used  by 
ministries  and  agencies  of  the  Ontario 
Government  to  help  provide  good 
public  service.  Other  users  include 
elected  officials  and  their  constituency 
offices,  libraries,  community 
information  centres  and  private 
industry. 

We  are  grateful  to  all  ministries, 
agencies  and  commissions  for  their 
cooperation  in  supplying  information 
about  their  programs  and  to  the  many 
users  of  the  previous  editions  for  their 
useful  suggestions. 

I  encourage  you  to  contact  the  Citizens’ 
Inquiry  Bureau  with  your  comments  or 
suggestions  for  future  editions  of  the 
Index.

Tips  on  using  the  KWIC  Index 


The  kwic  index  gets  its  name  from  the 
Key  Word  In  Context  computer  system 
on  which  it  is  based. 

Purpose 

The  Index  guides  users  to  the  correct 
source  of  information  or  service  in  the 
Ontario  Government.  See  page  ix  for 
other  sources  of  information.  Each  entry 
is  a  brief  but  complete  description  of  a 
branch  or  agency’s  activities  but  does 
not  include  specifics  on  a  program. 

These  should  be  obtained  directly  from 
the  branch  or  agency. 

How  To  Use  the  Index 

1.  Identify  your  area  of  interest,  for 
example,  you  are  starting  a  retail 
business  and  would  like  to  get  a  vendor’s 
permit  for  retail  sales  tax  purposes. 

2.  Look  for  the  key  word  that  tells  you 
about  the  subject,  e.g.  Retail  Sales  Tax. 
Under  this  key  word  is  the  description 
and  telephone  number  of  “Revenue 
Retail  Sales  Tax  Br.”  Had  you  chosen 
“Vendor’s  Permit”  as  your  key  word, 
you  would  have  found  the  same 
information. 

3.  If  you  can’t  find  your  key  word, 
consult  the  “Key  Word  Index”  on  page 
xvii  which  alphabetically  lists  all  key 
words  used  by  the  Index. 


4.  Let’s  take  another  example  to  show 
that  the  Index  provides  information 
about  over-all  Ontario  Government 
involvement  with  a  subject.  Panning,  for 
example,  is  covered  by  these  key  words: 
Parm,  Parm  Income  Stabilization,  Farm 
Land,  Farm  Products.  Under  each  key 
word  are  descriptions,  arranged 
alphabetically  by  ministry,  of  branches 
dealing  with  different  aspects  of  the 
subject. 

Each  entry  begins  with  the  Ministry 
name  (abbreviated  to  conserve  space) 
and  Branch  or  Agency  name.  Refer  to 
page  xvi  to  identify  these  abbreviations. 
For  easy  scanning,  a  key  word  is  printed 
in  bold  each  time  a  distinct  aspect  is 
mentioned  in  the  description. 

To  call  the  user’s  attention  to  another 
key  word  related  to  the  subject  at  hand, 
“see  also”  references  are  used,  e.g., 
“Debt,  see  also  Credit”.  To  control  the 
vocabulary  and  size  of  the  book,  “see” 
references  are  used,  guiding  the  user  to 
the  key  word  from  a  term  not  designated 
as  such,  e.g.,  “Cartography,  see  Maps” 
or  “Discharging  a  Mortgage,  see  CCR 
Regional  Property  Registration”. 

Key  words  which  are  Government 
terminology  whose  meaning  may  not 
already  be  explained  in  the  branch 
descriptions  are  defined,  e.g., 
Correctional  Institutions,  Extended 
Health  Care,  Half-way  Houses. 


Vll 


The  user  is  reminded  that  the  kwic 
index  deals  with  Ontario  Government 
information  and  services  only. 
Involvement  of  other  levels  of 
government  is  indicated  in  limited  cases, 
i.e.,  those  key  words  about  information 
and  services  frequently  requested  by  the 
public  such  as  Citizenship,  Immigrants, 
Pensions. 

Page  headings  function  like  those  of  a 
dictionary.  On  the  left  page  the  heading 
tells  you  the  first  key  word  on  that  page; 
on  the  right,  the  last. 

Telephone  Numbers,  Addresses, 

Regional  Offices 

Telephone  numbers  in  the  entries  are  in 
the  416  area  code  unless  otherwise 
stated.  Outside  Metro  Toronto  consult 
your  local  telephone  directory  for 
Government  of  Ontario  listings  or  refer 
to  page  695  of  this  Index  for  a  directory 
of  regional,  area  and  field  offices.  The 
directory  is  organized  by  Ministry, 
listing  branches,  agencies  and 
institutions  alphabetically  by  city  or 
town.  Where  information  is  available  on 
the  area  served  by  an  office,  this  is 
indicated  in  parentheses  at  the  bottom 
of  each  address. 

The  amalgamation  of  the  Ministry  of 
Colleges  &  Universities  and  the  Ministry 
of  Education  was  in  process  at  the  time 
of  writing.  If  there  is  difficulty  getting 
telephone  numbers  of  programs  affected 
by  the  amalgamation,  contact  the 
Ministry  of  Education’s  Central  Services 
Branch,  Information  Services  Section  at 
416  965-6407. 


To  write  to  an  Ontario  Government 
branch  or  agency  in  Metro  Toronto, 
refer  to  page  798  for  a  listing  of  mailing 
addresses. 

The  kwic  index  does  not  concern  itself 
with  names  of  officials,  individuals’ 
telephone  numbers  nor  street  locations 
of  offices  in  Queen’s  Park  and  Metro 
Toronto.  This  information  is  available 
from  a  companion  reference,  the 
Ontario  Government  Telephone 
Directory,  published  twice  a  year  by  the 
Ministry  of  Government  Services.  It  is 
on  sale  at  the  Ontario  Government 
Bookstore,  880  Bay  St.,  Toronto  M7A 
1N8. 

Ministerial  Responsibility  for  Acts 

“Ministerial  Responsibility  for  Acts”  on 
page  785  lists  Ontario  legislation 
alphabetically  by  name  of  the  Act.  The 
Ministry  or  office  responsible  is 
indicated  beside  each  Act.  If  you  are  not 
sure  which  branch  administers  an  Act, 
contact  the  ministry’s 
Information/Communications  Branch 
or  Legal  Services  Branch. 

The  Government  Structure 

“Understanding  the  Government 
Structure”  on  page  x  tells  you  how  the 
Government  is  organized.  It  provides 
brief  descriptions  of  the  over-all  goals  of 
each  ministry. 

In  turn,  all  branches  and  agencies  of 
each  ministry  are  described  in  the  Index, 
alphabetically  by  ministry  name. 
Ministry  of  Agriculture  &  Food 
branches,  for  example,  are  found 
starting  on  page  14.

VIII 


There  are  several  categories  of  Ontario 
Government  agencies,  boards  and 
commissions,  or  “special  purpose 
bodies”  as  they  are  sometimes  known. 

Some  bodies  designed  to  serve  a 
continuing  function  are  created  by 
specific  Acts  administered  by  the 
appropriate  ministry  to  deal  with  the 
subject  concerned.  These  are  listed  by 
ministry  in  the  Index,  e.g.,  Health 
Addiction  Research  Foundation.  Some 
autonomous  bodies  are  listed  separately, 
e.g.,  Workmen’s  Compensation  Board 
but  the  description  indicates  the 
ministry  through  which  they  report  to 
the  Legislature. 

Under  the  Public  Inquiries  Act,  the 
Legislature  authorizes  Cabinet  to 
appoint  one  or  more  individuals  as  a 
Commission  or  Royal  Commission  to 
inquire  into  a  specific  public  concern. 
The  Act  governs  methods  and 
procedures  used  by  the  Commission, 
e.g.,  hearings,  subpoena  power.  The 
Index  lists  a  few  long-term  ones  under 
“Commission”  or  “Royal  Commission” 
such  as  Royal  Commission  on  the 
Northern  Environment. 

Judicial  Inquiries  may  be  appointed 
under  Specific  Acts  to  examine  special 
legal  circumstances.  Usually  short-term, 
these  bodies  are  not  included  in  the 
Index.  The  Queen’s  Park  Switchboard 
can  provide  the  address  and  phone 
number  for  a  current  Inquiry. 


Advisory  Committees  and  Task  Forces 
are  appointed  by  a  Minister  if 
empowered  by  the  Ministry  Act  or  by 
Order-In-Council  to  examine  specific 
matters.  We  have  listed  the  current  ones 
by  ministry,  e.g.,  Cult  &  Rec  Council  on 
Franco-Ontarian  Affairs.  Those  not 
reporting  to  a  ministry  are  listed 
separately,  e.g.  Advisory  Council  on 
Senior  Citizens. 

Each  session,  under  the  Legislative 
Assembly  Act,  the  Legislature  appoints 
Select  or  Standing  Committees  to  which 
specific  matters  are  referred  for 
examination.  The  Clerk  of  the 
Legislature,  listed  under  “Clerk’s 
Office,”  can  answer  inquiries  about  these 
Committees.

Other  Sources  of  Information 


Community  Information  Centres  and 
Public  Libraries  constitute  other  sources 
of  information  in  the  community. 
Ministry  of  Northern  Affairs 
Community  Service  Offices  serve  as  a 
contact  point  for  government  in 
northern  communities. 

Community  Information  Centres 

There  are  about  60  Community 
Information  Centres  in  Ontario.  Each 
Centre  provides  its  local  public  and 
other  organizations  with  one  number  to 
phone  for  information  about  services 
and  resources  locally  available. 
Directions  to  and  information  about  all 
levels  of  government,  as  well  as  local 
agencies,  groups  and  activities,  is 
available  from  Centres.  Consult  your 
telephone  directory  or  municipal  office 
for  the  phone  number  of  the  Centre  that 
serves  you. 

Public  Libraries 

There  are  about  900  public  library 
branches  and  other  service  points  in 
Ontario.  Staff  inform  the  public  on  how 
to  contact  all  levels  of  government,  local 
agencies  and  resources  in  the 
community.  They  also  provide  access  to 
government  publications  on  their 
shelves  and  assist  the  public  in  related 
research.  Consult  your  telephone 
directory  under  “Public  Library”  to  find 
the  branch  serving  your  community. 


Ministry  of  Northern  Affairs 
Community  Service  Offices 

Community  Service  Offices  located 
throughout  Northern  Ontario  provide 
information  service,  referral  and 
assistance  on  all  Ontario  government 
programs.  Offices  also  help  Federal 
government  agencies  service  the  North. 
They  distribute  publications  and  act  as 
contact  points  for  government  agencies. 
See  Appendix  for  list  of  offices.

Understanding  the  Government  Structure 


The  Ontario  Government  consists  of  the 
men  and  women  elected  to  represent  the 
people  of  the  Province  in  the  Legislature 
together  with  the  public  servants  who 
put  the  legislators’  policies  into  action. 


THE  CABINET 

Officially  called  the  Executive  Council, 
the  Cabinet  exercises  the  executive 
power  of  the  Ontario  Government. 
Cabinet  comprises  the  Premier,  the 
Provincial  Secretaries  of  the  three  policy 
fields,  Ministers  directing  ministries, 
Ministers  without  portfolio  and  the 
Chairman  of  Management  Board  of 
Cabinet. 


THE  BASIC  UNITS 

The  basic  units  of  the  government 
structure  are  the  Ministries  such  as 
Education,  Health,  Environment  and 
Labour,  each  responsible  to  a  Minister 
in  the  Cabinet.  There  are  also  Agencies, 
Boards  and  Commissions,  some  of 
which  are  autonomous  bodies  that 
function  outside  the  Ministries  but  at 
times  report  to  the  Legislature  through  a 
Cabinet  Minister.  These  Agencies, 
Boards  and  Commissions  are  set  up  as 
advisory,  regulatory,  appeal  or  legal 
entities  and  are  generally  named 
Agencies  or  Boards,  Advisory 
Committees  or  Councils,  Corporations, 
Institutes,  Foundations,  Tribunals  or 
Commissions. 


The  Ministries  and  some  Agencies, 
Boards  and  Commissions  are  grouped 
into  three  common  areas  of  interest 
called  policy  fields  (Justice,  Resources 
Development  and  Social  Development). 
Some  Ministries  performing  central- 
agency  services  for  the  whole  Ontario 
Government  do  not  fall  under  a  policy 
field.  These  are  Government  Services, 
Intergovernmental  Affairs,  Revenue, 
Treasury  &  Economics  and  Civil  Service 
Commission. 

The  work  within  a  policy  field  is 
coordinated  by  a  different  kind  of 
Cabinet  Minister  —  the  Provincial 
Secretary. 

The  Provincial  Secretaries,  supported  by 
small  secretariats  in  each  field,  are 
responsible  for  relating  policies  and 
priorities  that  cut  across  the  traditional 
lines  of  departmental  organization.  This 
allows  Ministries  and  Agencies  to  share 
problems  and  coordinate  courses  of 
action. 

Provincial  Secretaries  guide  rather  than 
direct  the  approaches  to  the  areas  of 
government  concern  within  their  policy 
fields.  In  Cabinet  they  sit  as  equals  with 
colleagues  who  head  Ministries  with 
program  responsibilities. 

In  turn,  the  policy  fields  report  to  the 
Policy  and  Priorities  Board  of  Cabinet, 
chaired  by  the  Premier,  which  brings  an 
over-all  perspective  to  proposals  being 
developed  for  consideration  by  Cabinet 
itself  and  eventually,  the  Legislature. 


xi 


The  Management  Board  of  Cabinet 
reviews  the  implementation  of  new 
programs  and  the  effectiveness  of 
continuing  operations  of  the 
Government. 


POLICY  FIELDS  AND  MINISTRIES 

Social  Development  Policy  Field 

The  Ministry  of  Colleges  and 
Universities.  When  passed  and 
proclaimed,  Bill  19  (The  Ministry  of 
Education  Act)  will  combine  the 
Ministry  of  Colleges  and  Universities 
and  the  Ministry  of  Education.  See  The 
Ministry  of  Education  for  goals  of  the 
amalgamated  Ministry. 

The  Ministry  of  Community  and  Social 
Services  provides  programs  and  services 
for  children  and  their  families,  senior 
citizens,  the  handicapped  (the  disabled 
and  those  with  physical,  emotional  or 
educational  handicaps),  the  mentally 
retarded  and  those  in  financial  need.  It 
makes  available  various  kinds  of 
assistance  to  people  in  the  above 
categories  through  local  governments, 
private  agencies  and  charitable 
organizations.  The  Ministry’s 
involvement  varies  and  may  include 
funding,  developing  programs,  setting 
guidelines,  consulting,  licensing  and 
supervision. 


The  Ministry  of  Culture  and  Recreation 

encourages  responsible  citizenship 
through  cultural  and  recreational 
development.  Its  programs  relate  to 
heritage  conservation,  arts  support, 
sports  and  fitness,  libraries  and

multiculturalism.  The  ministry  supports 
a  number  of  cultural,  recreational  and 
historical  facilities  and  institutions. 

The  Ministry  of  Education  ensures  the 
provision  of  all  education  in  Ontario, 
from  kindergarten  through  to  post 
graduate  studies  at  the  university  level. 
The  Ministry  also  provides 
correspondence  courses  and  operates 
schools  for  the  deaf,  blind  and 
handicapped.  It  is  involved  in  skill 
training  programs  (including 
apprenticeship).  The  Ministry  provides 
grants  to  the  province’s  school  boards 
and  to  the  universities,  community 
colleges,  Ryerson  Polytechnical  Institute 
and  the  Ontario  College  of  Art.  The 
Ministry  is  also  responsible  for  the 
education  and  certification  of 
elementary  and  secondary  school 
teachers. 

The  Ministry  of  Health  is  responsible  for 
ensuring  the  good  health  of  the  Ontario 
public  by  administering  such  programs 
as  health  insurance,  care  for  the 
mentally  ill,  extended  health  care,  home 
care  services,  the  regulation  of  hospitals 
and  nursing  homes,  drug  benefit.  The 
ministry  operates  psychiatric  hospitals 
and  medical  laboratories  and 
coordinates  ambulance  services. 


XU 


Resources  Development  Policy  Field 

The  Ministry  of  Agriculture  and  Food  is 

concerned  with  one  of  Ontario’s  most 
important  industries,  farming.  Its 
programs  include  education  and 
research,  extension  services  to  increase 
technical  knowledge  among  farmers, 
marketing  and  rural  development. 

The  Ministry  of  Energy  develops  and 
implements  a  provincial  energy  policy  to 
ensure  an  adequate  energy  supply  at  a 
reasonable  price  and  with  acceptable 
impact  on  the  environment.  The 
ministry  works  closely  with  Ontario 
Hydro,  the  Ontario  Energy  Board  and 
Ontario  Energy  Corporation. 

The  Ministry  of  the  Environment  is 

responsible  for  services  designed  to 
achieve  four  major  objectives:  control  of 
contaminant  emissions,  establishment  of 
environmental  safeguards,  management 
of  water  and  waste,  and  development 
and  maintenance  of  measures  intended 
to  restore  and  enhance  Ontario’s  natural 
environment. 

The  Ministry  of  Housing  is  responsible 
for  ensuring  that  provincial  interests  are 
reflected  through  a  sound  community 
planning  framework  and  through 
facilitating  the  provision  and 
maintenance  of  adequate,  affordable 
housing. 


The  Ministry  of  Industry  and  Tourism 

serves  to  encourage  the  effective 
development  of  Ontario’s  industry, 
manufacturing  and  small  business 
sectors;  to  increase  their  sales 
domestically  and  abroad;  to  search  out 
new  market  opportunities;  to  encourage 
new  technology;  to  identify  key 
economic  problems  or  opportunities  and 
to  assist  in  the  development  and 
promotion  of  Ontario’s  tourism 
industry. 

The  Ministry  of  Labour  aims  to  advance 
the  well-being  of  employees  and 
employers  by  promoting  the  productive 
use  of  labour.  Its  programs  are 
concerned  with  rights  and 
responsibilities  of  the  individual  worker, 
rights  and  obligations  of  management 
and  labour  unions,  ensuring  health  and 
safety  in  the  workplace  and 
improvement  of  the  status  of  women 
employees.  The  Ontario  Human  Rights 
Commission  and  Workmen’s 
Compensation  Board  report  to  the 
Legislature  through  the  Minister  of 
Labour. 

The  Ministry  of  Natural  Resources 

manages  Ontario’s  lands  and  waters  to 
provide  opportunities  for  outdoor 
recreation  and  resource  development.  It 
ensures  adequate  social  and  economic 
benefits  are  derived  from  resource 
development  and  manages  publicly 
owned  lands.  Its  range  of  programs 
covers  such  areas  as  hunting,  fishing, 
mapping,  Crown  lands,  mines,  forests 
and  parks.

The  Ministry  of  Northern  Affairs 

coordinates  Government  of  Ontario 
services  in  Northern  Ontario  and 
provides  residents  easier  access  to  and

programs  include  community  and 
regional  development  including  townsite 
planning;  supervision  of  air,  water,  road 
and  rail  transportation;  construction  of 
roads,  highways  and  airports;

is  also  a  member  of  the  other  two  policy 
field  committees. 

The  Ministry  of  Transportation  and 
Communications  operates  Ontario’s 
highway  system  by  performing  design, 
construction  and  maintenance  activities 
and  provides  subsidies  to  municipalities 
for  road  construction  and  maintenance. 
The  ministry  is  also  responsible  for 
driver  licensing  and  all  aspects  of  motor 
vehicle  licensing  and  safety.  It 
represents  the  rights  of  Ontario  citizens 
in  the  communications  field  and 
regulates  telephone  service  under 
provincial  jurisdiction. 

Justice  Policy  Field 

The  Ministry  of  the  Attorney  General

and  inspection  of  technical  and 
operational  situations  to  ensure  safety; 
registration  of  documents  related  to  all 
aspects  of  real  and  personal  property 
ownership.  The  ministry  ensures  a 
reasonable  standard  of  decency  in  films 
shown  in  Ontario  and  controls  the  use 
and  availability  of  beverage  alcohol. 

The  Ministry  of  Correctional  Services 

has  jurisdiction  over  all  adult  offenders 
sentenced  to  terms  of  less  than  two 
years.  Its  services  include  care  in 
correctional  institutions,  probation, 
parole  supervision  and  assistance. 

The  Ministry  of  the  Solicitor  General 

contributes  to  the  protection  and 
security  of  society  by  law  enforcement, 
maintenance  of  peace  and  order  and 
protection  of  persons  and  property  while 
ensuring  individual  freedom  and  rights. 
Its  programs  include  supervision  of  the 
Ontario  Provincial  Police,  the  Ontario 
Police  Commission,  the  Ontario  Police 
Arbitration  Commission,  the  Chief 
Coroner’s  Office,  the  Centre  of  Forensic 
Sciences  and  the  Office  of  the  Fire 
Marshal  and  Forensic  Pathology. 

The  following  ministries  and  offices  do 
not  fall  under  any  policy  field.  They 
perform  central-agency  services  for  the 
whole  Ontario  Government. 


xiv 


The  Management  Board  of  Cabinet  is 

not  a  ministry  but  a  committee  of 
cabinet  ministers  with  a  Chairman.  It  is 
responsible  for  coordinating  the 
financial  and  administrative  operations 
of  the  Government.  It  reviews  ministry 
submissions  including  program 
proposals,  annual  estimates,  new 
legislation  and  regulations  as  well  as 
organizational  changes.  In  these 
activities,  the  Board  is  supported  by  staff 
of  the  Management  Board  Secretariat. 

The  Civil  Service  Commission  reports  to 
the  Chairman  of  Management  Board. 
Through  its  major  divisions,  Staffing, 
Compensation  and  Staff  Relations,  the 
Commission  is  responsible  for 
recruitment,  classification,  salary 
conditions  and  terms  of  employment  in 
the  Ontario  Public  Service. 

The  Ministry  of  Government  Services  is 

responsible  for  providing 
accommodation  facilities  and  a  wide 
range  of  goods  and  services  in  support 
of  Ontario  Government  ministries  and 
agencies.  The  Ministry  is  organized  into 
three  programs:  Accommodation, 

Supply  and  Services,  and 
Communications  and  Computer 
Services. 

The  Ministry  of  Intergovernmental 
Affairs  is  the  province’s  chief  contact 
with  Ontario  local  governments.  It  is 
responsible  for  relations  with  the  federal 
government,  other  provinces  and 
external  governments  and  agencies.  It 
plans  an  integral  part,  along  with  the 
Premier’s  Office,  in  the  formulation  and 
discussion  of  the  Canadian  constitution. 


The  Ministry  of  Revenue  administers  the 
major  taxing  statutes  of  Ontario  (such  as 
The  Corporations  Tax  Act,  The 
Gasoline  Tax  Act,  The  Tobacco  Tax 
Act,  The  Retail  Sales  Tax  Act  and  The 
Land  Transfer  Tax  Act).  It  conducts 
property  assessment  to  provide  the  tax 
base  for  Ontario  municipalities  and 
administers  two  major  income 
redistribution  programs:  the  Ontario 
Tax  Credit  System  and  the  Guaranteed 
Annual  Income  System  (GAINS)  for 
senior  citizens.  It  also  operates  the 
Province  of  Ontario  Savings  Office. 

The  Ministry  of  Treasury  &  Economics 

recommends  fiscal,  economic  and 
regional  policies  within  the  Ontario 
Government.  Work  is  done  on  taxation 
and  fiscal  policy  (including  development 
of  the  provincial  Budget),  economic 
policy  and  analysis,  regional  economic 
development,  provincial  borrowing  and 
accounting,  and  statistical  information. 


YOUR  MEMBER  OF  PROVINCIAL 
PARLIAMENT 

Your  MPP  —  the  member  of  the 
Provincial  Parliament  elected  to 
represent  the  constituency  in  which  you 
live  —  is  your  principal  link  with  the 
Government  of  Ontario. 

MPPs  participate  in  discussions,  debates 
and  vote  in  the  Legislature  and  its 
committees,  where  policies  are  made 
into  laws  governing  all  of  us.  They  bring 
to  that  task  a  knowledge  of  the  needs 
and  desires  of  people  living  in  their 
areas. 


The  MPP  is  a  channel  of 
communication  between  individual 
citizens  and  their  Government  —  not 
only  through  the  periodic  message  of  the 
ballot  box,  but  in  daily  contacts  with 
constituents. 

To  write  to  your  MPP  in  Queen’s  Park, 
address  your  letter  as  follows: 

Name  of  MPP 

Legislative  Buildings 

Queen’s  Park,  Toronto  M7A  1A2 

See  the  Appendix  of  this  book  for  a 
directory  of  MPPs’  Constituency 
Offices.
