Petition to Designate St. James Town as Neighborhood Improvement Area

In March 2014, the City of Toronto identified and designated 31 neighbourhoods (out of a possible 140) as Neighbourhood Improvement Areas (NIAs) under the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020 (TSNS2020). Based on various indicators of socio-economic need, NIAs are given priority status on public and private funding towards community development and sustainability.

St. James Town is not currently designated as a NIA, but a resident-led petition is being circulated to request the City to review its designation. If you would like to sign the petition, please come to The Corner, or click here to fill out he online petition.
