The outdoor infrastructure improvements to the Toronto Community Housing development were made possible through the Partnership Opportunities Legacy Fund, an initiative born in 2007 when City Council committed to investing $13 million in Council’s designated 13 Priority Neighbourhoods. Through the projects approved to date under this initiative, an additional $13.6 million in leveraged funding from outside partners will be invested in youth-focused social and recreational facilities in the 13 Priority Neighbourhoods.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
