MOUNT DENNIS ECO-NEIGHBORHOOD INITIATIVE
WHO WE ARE
The MDeNI team is made up of the MDCA, local service providers, the TRCA, and city-wide partners. Of this multi-layered team, we meet with planning agencies, developers, relevant City of Toronto departments, Mount Dennis residents, and Indigenous advisors to better inform our work.
To embody sustainability at a community scale by addressing the priority areas of: environment and infrastructure, livability, equity, health, and prosperity.
The Mount Dennis Eco-Neighbourhood Project looks to answer the question of how can people in a highly diverse and historically disadvantaged community be empowered to create the conditions for establishing a sustainable neighbourhood.
An integrated planning and implementation process will aim to reverse factors that contribute to a changing climate, while regenerating environmental health, building local resilience and promoting an inclusive green economy.
