CPTED ONTARIO 2016 CONFERENCE
October 18 and 19, 2016
Toronto Community Housing Corporation
246 Sackville Street
“Community Revitalization”…… Everyone aspires to live in a safe and vibrant community. Unfortunately, this is not always possible given a variety of social, economic and physical constraints that can collectively undermine this desire. Yet regardless of the magnitude of the challenges that we may face, the opportunity for community renewal through revitalization can be every bit as great.
This conference will examine and celebrate the transformative power of “community revitalization”. It will focus on Toronto Community Housing’s ground-breaking example of Regent Park and how the Housing Authority along with its partners transformed an at risk community into a successful, mixed-income, mixed-use neighbourhood, with rental buildings, market condominium buildings, townhomes, commercial space, community facilities, active parks and open space.
