Learn who and what is driving this new project.
Canada Lands and Northcrest have begun the process of working together to plan 520 acres at Downsview. In consultation with stakeholders and the local community, we are working towards a Framework Plan to guide future development. This is just the start of a project that will take decades to evolve. 

Design ideas are emerging from Round One feedback
& shared priorities.

Our design team has been exploring ideas in response to public and stakeholder feedback, public policy priorities, and the priorities of Northcrest and Canada Lands. We’re ready to share and seek feedback from you on our early ideas, grouped around four themes: Parks & Nature, Getting Around & Across the Site, Jobs & Employment, and Communities & Neighbourhoods.

To know where we’re going, we need to know where we’ve been.
Get to know the personalities and stories—both big and small—that have contributed to the distinctive character of the Downsview area through time. Tell us which  stories are important to you and suggest others to explore.

You've got questions, we've got some answers!
The FAQs are regularly updated in response to community questions and feedback.  Have a look and please get in touch if you need any more information.  You can also check out the Discussion Guide.

A deep dive into the planning & engagement process.
The id8 Downsview team, members from the local community, and Toronto’s wider public have a lot to learn from—and about—each other. Dive deep into planning and engagement topics and join conversations exploring the multiple powers, priorities, and perspectives at play in the id8 Downsview process.

We acknowledge that the Downsview lands are on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit who signed Treaty 13 (1805), and that these lands have also been the historic homelands of the Huron Wendat and Haudenosaunee people.
