Like all thriving global cities, Toronto faces the conundrum of deepening social challenges. The city’s buoyant real estate market (booming for over two decades) has put pressure on social organizations that provide essential civic services to the broader population as they navigate the complexities of rapid growth. This tour will look at success stories of “social-purpose real estate” initiatives and organizations in Toronto that seek to address many of these challenges and opportunities ranging from the settlement of newcomers to the growth of the maker economy, and the preservation of arts and culture.

Tour Cost: US$125 per person, which includes lunch.
