Members of our Community Safety Unit and Tenant Community Services team fire up the grill.
Earlier this summer, tenants, staff and community partners from Mornelle Court gathered for a community BBQ to share their thoughts and provide feedback on the Mornelle Community Action Plan.
Since March 2018, Toronto Community Housing and the City of Toronto have been working on Tenants First, a project that introduces new approaches to connecting Mornelle residents to networks, resources and opportunities. Working closely with residents, the Mornelle Community Action Plan aims to outline issues that are important to this community.

The BBQ was an opportunity for tenants to meet and share their ideas on community needs including employment, training, health, education, safety and security. A graphic illustrator was on hand to help record tenants' ideas and feedback.

Tenants also connected with a variety of community agencies and partners, learning about local resources and opportunities.
