The City of Toronto has designated 31 of its 140 social planning neighbourhoods as Neighbourhood Improvement Areas (NIAs) as part of the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020.

Work is now beginning in the NIAs to activate people and organizations, appropriate resources and neighbourhood-aware policies at multiple levels.
