Regent Park

Building Great Neighbourhoods

Regent Park is Canada's largest and oldest publicly funded community, built more than 50 years ago, it was originally designed as a transitional community. In July 2003 Toronto City Council approved the revitalization of Regent Park 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 recognized that revitalization was more than planning a physical environment; it was about planning for people as Regent Park undergoes significant demographic and social changes. Over the next several years, Regent Park will be going through a remarkable transition that will mean big changes and exciting opportunities for both current residents and the people who are interested in living in Toronto’s downtown east end.
