Learn who and what is driving this new project.
At Canada Lands and Northcrest, we have begun the process of working together to plan 520 acres of our adjacent lands at Downsview.  The collaboration will enable synergy in future development, generate public benefits, support local communities, and demonstrate how to build sustainable, resilient, vibrant, healthy, and complete neighbourhoods.

Our process will be transparent, collaborative & built on best practice. 
Our approach to the future at Downsview begins with a respect for the past and an appreciation for existing activities. We are developing a planning and engagement process that is driven by a set of shared values and is responsive to an evolving set of local priorities.  What opportunities do you think should be considered?

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.

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.
