Negotiating Against Expensification

March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Panelists:

  • Troy Budhu (Toronto Community Benefits Network)
  • Mimi Lau (Golden Mile Impact Project)
  • Emily Paradis (Build a Better Bloor-Dufferin)
  • Mercedes Sharpe Zayas (Parkdale People’s Economy)
  • Clara Stewart-Robertson (Jane Finch Centre)

With city plans for intensification near ‘higher-order’ transit, redevelopment pressure is directed to streets with existing commercial and residential affordability. We’ve invited community workers and activists to share strategies for negotiating benefits and affordability in transit-oriented redevelopments. Focusing on four hotspots – Eglinton’s Golden Mile, Bloor and Dufferin, Parkdale, and Finch West – we consider the potential and limitations of securing affordability for existing residents and newcomers alike through a development-driven approach to community benefits.
