About the Project:

Infrastructure Ontario (IO), with the Ministry of Infrastructure (MOI) is leading the Transit-Oriented Communities Program as it relates to the “New Subway Transit Plan for the GTA,” part of the government’s smart, forward-thinking plan to build new, sustainable transit. The Transit-Oriented Communities (TOC) approach provides real opportunity to build vibrant, higher density, mixed-use communities that are connected to transit stations.

IO, on behalf of the Province, is committed to working with the City of Toronto on the future plans to build transit and a TOC at the future Gerrard Station. 

The Gerrard-Carlaw North site consists of one site which has been designated for TOC use.  The site will be developed in line with the stated objectives of the TOC program.

The future growth potential for Gerrard-Carlaw North site is dependent on a planned transit station that will serve the surrounding neighborhood with connections to streetcar and subway service along the Ontario Line. The proposed Gerrard Station site will add more housing and retail space for businesses as well as significant parkland. 

Community input is a key component of TOC and is anticipated to take place this fall, following the City’s Planning review.
