Summary

The Regent Park Social Development Plan was developed through community consultations to ensure social inclusion and social cohesion of residents throughout the duration of the Regent Park revitalization. In 2017, after ten years of revitalization, community partners, residents and City staff updated the Social Development Plan and identified fifty three actions for implementation.  Nineteen of these actions have been identified as priority and are ready for implementation while the remaining thirty four actions require further development.   

           

This report identifies prioritized Regent Park Social Development Plan actions, services and programs and a strategy to resource these actions for consideration in the 2020 Budget process.
