Regent Park

Regent Park

Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) is going beyond bricks and mortar to provide a positive tenant experience, build clean, safe homes for our tenants and create vibrant communities where people can thrive.

The Regent Park revitalization showcases TCHC 's approach to city building. Working together with the City of Toronto, Regent Park tenants, their neighbours, our private sector development partners and community partners, we are transforming aging housing infrastructure into a successful, mixed-income, mixed-use neighbourhood, with rental buildings, market condominium buildings, townhomes, commercial spaces, community facilities, active parks and open spaces.


With eight active construction sites, the coming year will be the biggest yet in the transformation of Regent Park. Learn more​​ about the progress of Regent Park here​.
