Neighbourhood Action Plan

Each Neighbourhood Planning Table created an Action Plan that reflected each of the Neighbourhood Improvement Areas’s (NIA) priority issues identified by residents and other stakeholders. Residents, local agencies, and other stakeholders provided input to ensure actions were prioritized according to the needs of the community, and to identify the resources that were needed to complete the actions.

The Action Plan below was categorized by the five domains of wellbeing that were central to the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020 (TSNS 2020), and were tracked and updated to address changing needs.
