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 JANUARY 2017: 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 and Emerging Neighbourhoods. Apply now!

In Spring 2014, City Council will choose which neighbourhoods will become Neighbourhood Improvement Areas, resulting from resident, business and agency consultations.
When a neighbourhood is identified as a Neighbourhood Improvement Area, the City will work with residents, businesses and agencies to make the changes the neighbourhood needs.
