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 or within a short distance 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 TOC at the future Thorncliffe Park Station. 

The Thorncliffe Park site consists of three sites which have been designated for TOC use.  These sites will be developed in line with the stated objectives of the TOC program.

The future growth potential for Thorncliffe Park site is dependent on a planned transit station that will serve the surrounding neighbourhood with convenient connections to the subway service along the Ontario Line and a new TTC bus terminus. The proposed Thorncliffe Park Station site will add more housing and retail space for businesses, significant parkland and enhanced public realm and streetscapes.

Community input is a key component of TOCs and began in early 2024, following the city’s planning review.
