Toronto, ON (November 6, 2023) – The Daniels Corporation (Daniels), together with the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC), is honoured to announce that the first three phases of the Regent Park revitalization have received the prestigious Public-Private Collaboration Award at the World Economic Forum’s 2023 Urban Transformation Summit. This award acknowledges and celebrates successful private-public partnerships that establish the benchmark for excellence in urban development. It also underscores the remarkable transformation of Regent Park from a once-stigmatized social housing community into an inclusive, mixed-income, mixed-use neighbourhood as a world-leading example of cities collaborating with local communities and other stakeholders, to improve lives and create more resilient economies.
