Located in the Leslieville/Beaches area, the Don Summerville community has collaborated with TCHC and development partners, Context Developments Inc. and RioCan, to revitalize their neighbourhood. The revitalization builds the capacities of tenants, launches programs geared to tenant needs, creates job opportunities, and fosters social cohesion and community engagement.
