Don Summerville

Toronto Community Housing is going beyond bricks and mortar to build clean, safe homes for our residents while creating vibrant communities where people can thrive.

By working together with the City of Toronto, our residents, our neighbours, and our private development partners, we are transforming aging housing infrastructure into better homes, better neighbourhoods, and a better Toronto for all.

Toronto Community Housing is working closely with tenants and other stakeholders to revitalize the Don Summerville community. In addition to the physical redevelopment of the area, Toronto Community Housing will be supporting the social and economic development by building the capacities of tenants, launching programs geared to tenant needs, creating job opportunities, and fostering social cohesion and community engagement. 


Don Summerville is located in the Leslieville/Beach area, bounded by Queen Street East to the north, Coxwell Avenue to the east, and Eastern Avenue to the south.
