Toronto to Zero is led by a Champion Team composed of people living with and affected by HIV, volunteers and employees from the municipal and provincial HIV sector, provincial government representatives, and health system stakeholders. At least 25% of members of the Champion Team are people living with HIV, or from populations most affected by HIV.

- Oversee the initiative’s planning, implementation and impact/outcomes, and ensure its feasibility.
- Establish a shared agenda/roadmap.
- Develop an open and transparent community engagement and consultation process.
- Establish targets and indicators, and report publically on project progress.
- Address any issues that have major implications for the desired outcome(s).
- Establish time-limited Task Groups to develop action plans to address key needs, issues and gaps.
