All Community Development Unit activities have been suspended and redirected to support the City’s efforts in respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay up-to-date on all affected City services and when they may resume by visiting Changes to City Services.
As part of the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020, Neighbourhood Planning Tables is a place-based planning approach that involves residents, community agencies, local businesses, City Councillors and City staff who work in the 31 Neighbourhood Improvement Areas (NIAs), meeting regularly to identify local priorities, plan solutions, and create partnerships for a strong neighbourhood.
Although they may be referred to as Neighbourhood Action Partnerships (NAPs), networks or coalitions, Neighbourhood Planning Tables are open to everyone in the neighbourhood who wishes to participate in priority setting, planning and taking local action for community change. Each table is supported by a Community Development Officer from the City who assists the implementation of Neighbourhood Action Plans that reflect priority issues identified by residents and other stakeholders.
