October 21 - Public consultations on strategy for strong Toronto neighbourhoods

The City of Toronto is conducting public consultations to determine how to choose the next generation of Neighbourhood Improvement Areas – formerly known as Priority Neighbourhoods. The consultations are part of the development of the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020.

The strategy will deliver city-wide change by partnering with residents, businesses and agencies to invest in people, services, programs and facilities in Neighbourhood Improvement Areas. The strategy is designed to strengthen social, economic and physical conditions of neighbourhoods and supporting healthy communities across Toronto.

The Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020 builds on the 2005 Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy and on feedback from participants in a wide range of initiatives. The strategy includes important updates, including updated goals, new criteria for choosing Neighbourhood Improvement Areas, a new monitoring and evaluation process, and the development of a new plan to ensure broader regional, provincial and national policies and programs to help strengthen all neighbourhoods.

All Toronto residents are encouraged to participate and provide the City with feedback about this important strategy by completing an online survey and/or attending one of eight Community Conversations to share their ideas. Residents can visit http://www.toronto.ca/neighbourhoods to complete a survey or register for one of the following Community Conversations:
