Tour Leader: Alan Walks, University of Toronto
This walking tour will have participants exploring three notable neighbourhoods in Toronto's inner city, each abutting the others. Built in the late 1960s and early 1970s, St Jamestown is Canada's densest neighbourhood. It is just north of Cabbagetown, which is perhaps Toronto's, and even Canada's, most prominent example of the classic stage model of gentrification, and is said to house the greatest remaining cluster of 19th century Victoria houses in North America. Just south of this, Regent Park, finally, is both Toronto's and Canada's first social housing project, and the largest in the country. It is currently undergoing an extensive redevelopment by a private-sector consortium, including many new private market condominium buildings, that will see its population more than triple. The tour walks participants through each neighbourhood, allowing for comparisons of the very different trajectories experienced by these contiguous neighbourhoods.
