Through a community-based fieldnotes program and local story collection, the Dept has been supporting a comprehensive engagement process for the redevelopment of 520 acres in northwest Toronto.
The Dept is working alongside Swerhun Inc to deliver comprehensive engagement services to Northcrest Developments and Canada Lands Company in support of their redevelopment of 520 acres in Downsview. These lands include the former Downsview military base and the Bombardier airstrip. Rethinking the evolution of the area and building sustainable, resilient, vibrant, healthy, and complete communities in close consultation with stakeholders and the local community will be multi-phased and take decades.
