About the Project

Infrastructure Ontario (IO), with the Ministry of Infrastructure 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 currently working with the City of Toronto on the future plans to build transit and a TOC at the future Corktown Station. 

The Corktown station site consists of both the First Parliament site (South site) and the block directly to the north of Front Street (North site), both of which have been designated as a TOC sites and will be redeveloped by the Province in line with the stated objectives of the TOC program.

The future growth potential for the Corktown site is dependent on a planned transit station that will serve the surrounding neighbourhood, connecting to local bus and streetcar routes, and subway service along the Ontario Line. The proposed sites at the future Corktown Station would deliver a mix of new housing opportunities, commercial, retail and community space, while commemorating the history of the First Parliament site.

Community input is a key component of TOC and took place in Fall 2021, following the City’s Planning review.
