Investing in Buildings
Toronto Community Housing is committed to delivering quality housing that improves the lives and living conditions of residents and communities. Our goal is to help create strong neighbourhoods where every tenant is connected to opportunities to succeed.
Part of this commitment is the revitalization of existing neighbourhoods, such as the successful ongoing revitalization in Regent Park in downtown Toronto. We are continuing these efforts through the revitalization of Lawrence Heights and Alexandra Park.
Our vision for revitalization goes beyond replacing housing in a poor state of repair. We are transforming communities to build great neighbourhoods for everyone.
Adding market units to these neighbourhoods creates mixed-income communities. Revitalization can attract investment in the form of new or improved amenities like schools, parks and improved transit. It also increases local jobs and training for residents and may create opportunities for affordable home ownership.
We remain committed to engagement processes that put tenants first and give them a real say over decisions that affect their lives.
That’s why throughout the planning process for revitalization in any community, we involve and engage residents to find out what they want in a revitalized community.

Another part of Toronto Community Housing’s commitment to delivering quality housing is the construction of new affordable rental housing in communities like the West Don Lands and the Railway Lands in downtown Toronto – providing opportunities for low- and moderate-income households to be part of these great new neighbourhoods.
Our vision is to contribute to a city where quality, affordable housing is available in vibrant neighbourhoods, where residents are proud of where they live, and where people feel connected to each other and their community.
Rejuvenating outdoor spaces in need of attention improves curb appeal and gives residents new spaces where they can relax with their families and get to know their neighbours.
