Toronto City Council approved the revitalization of Regent Park in July 2003 and directed that the Social Development, Finance and Administration Division work with community stakeholders and Toronto Community Housing (TCH) on a Social Development Plan. This direction recognizes that revitalization is about more than planning for the physical environment, it is about planning for people as Regent Park undergoes significant demographic and social changes.
The content of the Social Development Plan includes 75 recommendations in three broad areas - social cohesion, community services and facilities and employment as well as an implementation strategy for moving forward.
Toronto City Council approved the Regent Park Social Development Plan in October 2007. This is the first locality or "place-based" Social Development Plan for the City of Toronto and provides a framework for building a cohesive and inclusive community.
The full document and appendices (including the Employment Plan) are available below. The Regent Park Social Development Plan was also approved by the Toronto Community Housing Board of Directors in September 2007 and is posted on their website at www.regentpark.ca.
