Toronto has a deep history of developing affordable urban communities attractive to mixed-income residents. The approach has shifted over the years from public agency–led brick-and-mortar strategies to models that use real estate value to enable the private sector to participate in delivering on essential public objectives, creating a legacy of communities that mix subsidized and market-rate housing as a hallmark of the city. This tour will explore over 50 years of affordable housing initiatives, from the still-thriving St. Lawrence Neighborhood of the 1970s to the ongoing modern transformation of postwar social housing projects, such as Alexandra Park and Regent Park.
Tour Cost: US$125 per person, which includes lunch.
