Healthy Neighbourhoods

Every day we walk through our own neighbourhoods and local streets, visiting parks, friends and businesses. We each travel the city in different ways; walking, cycling or taking public transit. What makes us feel safe as we visit friends and businesses in our neighbourhoods? How do we get to our local coffee shop? Is there a public green space we can explore? If we feel sick, is there a nearby clinic? When we ask these questions, we consider the social determinants of health, including disability, food insecurity, access to healthcare, housing, gender and gender identity, to name a few. All of this and more contribute to our own wellness and that of our neighbourhoods.

What do healthy communities look like? What do our streets look like? How can our budget reflect the needs of our neighbourhoods? Together, we examined how the City of Toronto budget can impact the health, safety, and wellness of our communities.
