Parkdale is rapidly changing. This change is not inherently good or bad, but it raises important questions about affordability, diversity and community assets.

You love Parkdale because of our diversity. That’s why you moved here in the first place. You love the vibrant local businesses, the fact that it’s home to newcomers, psychiatric survivors, and other marginalized communities. You treasure our diversity and richness that comes with being in an urban community. 

How can you preserve the community you love, foster its growth and protect space for those that need it?

The answer is simple: support Parkdale's Neighbourhood Land Trust!

2019 has been a critical year for Parkdale. With your support, Parkdale's Neighbourhood Land Trust made a key downpayment in May 2019 and is now the owner of a licenced rooming house on Maynard Avenue! The Land Trust is proud to have been able to purchase and protect two plots of land in a community ownership model.

 

Imagine having many more stable affordable housing, community gardens and green space and affordable commercial space for small business. Together we can continue to preserve the character of Parkdale and protect its residents.

Please join us with a contribution to our Preserve and Protect Holiday Drive. Our goal is to raise $10,000 before December 31st 2019 to enable the Land Trust to continue to plan to acquire more properties for affordable housing. 


The most significant factor to our ability to acquire land is the ability to act quickly. Once the land is secure, we can access other support including government grants and corporate donations to complete the purchase and develop the property according to Parkdale's needs. But without this Preserve and Protect Fund, we risk losing more housing. This has already happened with many properties that would have been incredible opportunities had we been able to move quickly.
