TSNS 2020 supports healthy communities across Toronto by partnering with residents, businesses and agencies to invest in people, services, programs and facilities in specific neighbourhoods. This will strengthen the social, economic and physical conditions and deliver local impact for city-wide change.
The Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2O2O (TSNS 2O2O) is the City of Toronto’s action plan for ensuring that each of our 14O neighbourhoods can succeed and thrive.
UPDATED APPLICATION MARCH 2016: The City will invest $12 million in Toronto’s neighbourhood improvement areas over the next four years. This investment will fund new facilities such as playgrounds, parks, basketball courts, and other infrastructure improvements.
The City of Toronto is seeking volunteers to participate on the Toronto Strong Neighbourhood Resident Advisory Group to advise on the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the strategy. The Resident Advisory Group will be made up of 1 volunteer from each of the Neighbourhood Improvement Areas. Apply now!

City staff are currently working with residents, community groups, funders and other key stakeholders to help define the actions that hold the greatest promise for strengthening all 31 Neighbourhood Improvement Areas (NIAs). The input we receive will be used to create a detailed action plan that the City is committed to undertaking for all NIAs. This action plan will later be used, through local engagement, as the basis for collaboratively developing or enhancing existing local plans/activities with individual NIAs.
On April 25, neighbourhood representatives from Toronto's 31 Neighbourhood Improvement Areas, City of Toronto staff and funders came together at City Hall for the first of three conferences on the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy.Thank you to everyone for participating!
City staff are currently processing the neighbourhood priorities that participants have identified and will use this information to inform the next program design conference in May. A summary of the data will be made available shortly.
