The Revitalization of Regent Park: The Development of a Community Plan

In the fall of 2003, Ideas That Matter was retained to convene a process to engage stakeholders both within the neighbourhood and across the broader community in the revitalization of the Regent Park community in downtown Toronto. A city-wide forum was held in March 2004 with residents, community agencies, funders, and representatives from the city's economic, social, government and nonprofit sectors. A summary of the keynote presentation, given by Garland Yates of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is included in the Volume 3, Number 2 issue of Ideas That Matter.
