Covid-19 has helped Canadians understand that the unequal distribution of green space, especially for those in high-rise neighbourhoods, is an equity issue.
There are fundamental barriers to Toronto’s St James Town residents’ enjoyment of local green space.
CREW is working with residents to change this.
- We want to improve neighbourhood green spaces.
- We want outdoor spaces where people can make new friends.
- St James Town is an urban heat island: we want tree canopies and green spaces where people can cool down in hot weather.
