Moss Park


The Moss Park Coalition works specifically within the Toronto Downtown East community of Moss Park. Currently, the Coalition is organizing with local residents, community organizations, grassroots groups and faith groups to advocate for equitable development in Toronto’s historic Downtown East. Some of these new plans include the $18B Ontario Line subway and Moss Park Station, new condo developments, Downtown East Housing Strategy and redevelopment of the John Innes Community Recreation Centre. 

During 2022, the Coalition hosted community info sessions and events to engage with community members, businesses and organizations in the Moss Park area to discuss the impacts of a new Ontario Line subway project and develop a set of community benefit priorities for the Metrolinx transit project. This advocacy the to establishment of a Moss Park neighbourhood coalition to demand local community benefits opportunities for the area. 

The coalition continues to work with TCBN and local partners to advocate for a Community Benefits Agreement and hold all levels of government accountable  as part of the Metrolinx Ontario Line project as well as affordable housing, good local jobs, social procurement, preserving green spaces and nature, opportunities for local artists, and a Community Development Plan for the area.
