Neighbourhood Action Plan

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

The Action Plan below is categorized by the 5 domains of wellbeing that are central to the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020 (TSNS 2020), and tracked and updated regularly to address changing needs.
