The reforms are set to be considered at a virtual public meeting of the Toronto Police Service Board on Aug. 18.

, which has over 80 recommendations, was made public one day after the Ontario Human Rights Commission released findings that Black people in Toronto are “disproportionately” arrested, charged and subjected to use of force by the city’s police service.Toronto Mayor John Tory said some of the most significant recommendations include having different officials respond to mental health and addiction calls other than police officers and an expansion of the force’s mobile crisis intervention team.

Some of the recommendations — like changes to police oversight — require provincial approval. Tory said the province’s solicitor general has showed a willingness to consider changes. Tory said there will be an update on the report in October, though he said some reforms will take effect within a matter of weeks.
