The Laneway Project

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

The Laneway Project

The Laneway Project helps improve Toronto’s 2,400 laneways, including supporting local residents to beautify their laneways, adding greenery, hosting community events, addressing lighting, safety, and housing issues, and consulting with the City on laneway-friendly policies. Improved laneways provide new spaces for communities to interact, move through the neighbourhood, and create local pride. Recently, The Laneway Project worked with Ramsden Park Road residents and businesses to develop a master plan to catalyze the space’s transformation.

The Laneway Project is trusteed by Canadian Urban Institute.
