Our Engagement Approach

Creating Connections Across the City

We take a holistic approach to the way we plan for, build and develop neighbourhoods across Toronto. We engage with community members, local residents and stakeholders to ideate, create and find solutions during the development process. These personal connections build a solid foundation for our practices to ensure we deliver on projects that are recognized and celebrated by the community.

Featured Projects

Housing Now

Creating mixed-income communities on public land

Since spring 2019, CreateTO, along with City Planning and the Housing Secretariat, have been hosting community consultation meetings on Housing Now, an initiative investing in City-owned lands across Toronto for the development of affordable housing within mixed-income, mixed-use and transit-oriented communities. For more information on Housing Now and how to get involved, visit the Housing Now website.

Etobicoke Civic Centre

Building a new vision together

The plans for the Etobicoke Civic Centre (ECC) will transform the area into a revitalized civic hub for municipal, cultural and community uses. In collaboration with the City, a design competition was launched, with four shortlisted design teams as the competing finalists, all of which submitted their various conceptual designs for the development. A jury of professional architects, landscape architects, planners and urban designers selected Adamson Architects & Associates | Henning Larsen Architects | PMA Landscape Architects as the winning submission. In December 2017, City Council accepted the winning submission as the conceptual design for the new ECC.
