2020 "A PLACE TO GROW" ONTARIO PLATE ALLOCATION

On February 1, 2020, Ontario began issuing the ill-fated "A Place to Grow" passenger baseplate across the province.
Collector Mike Franks compiled information gathered by numerous other Ontario plate collectors. This info was gathered by way of telephone calls or in-person visits to ServiceOntario outlets. Credit is given in the table to those who reported information.
The goal was to paint as complete a picture as possible as to which alphanumerical blocs were issued during the initial roll-out of the new passenger vehicle plates. This information was bound to have gaps, and we didn't expect that a full representation would be possible.
Alphabetical serial blocs were distributed piecemeal across the province during the roll-out. It is possible for several cities to have been issued different number ranges within the same alphabetical bloc. Number ranges are included in the table when known. When number ranges are not known, they have been left blank.
The table is sortable by clicking on the headings.
This project was curtailed by events surrounding the subsequent cancellation of these plates due to their lack of reflectivity, and the cost required to upgrade to more reflective materials. The information presented here will remain incomplete. Unfortunately, the "A Place To Grow" plates are expected to be recalled in their entirety.
