Regeneration Works: Mission Per Square Foot
Throughout 2016, we have been working with faith organizations, congregations, property managers, community groups, heritage specialists, and local governments to bring proven methodologies for faith property regeneration – all tailored to address the unique challenges faced by faith groups and their communities. We identified 6 pilot communities in Toronto and are continue to work with them to ensure their long-term sustainability.
Our annual forum, entitled “Exploring Sacred Space: Regenerating Places of Faith“, takes place on Saturday, March 11 from 10am to 3:30pm at the U of T Multi-Faith Centre, and includes 4 diverse case studies of Toronto faith communities who have regenerated their buildings.

Ontario 150 Gardens
We are thrilled to be participating in Canada’s 150th anniversary through the Ontario 150 Youth Partnership Program. Throughout 2017, we will be engaging youth at 3 faith communities in Toronto through gardens.
Extreme Weather Resiliency
The Toronto Chapter has been involved with a “faith community as resiliency hubs” project since the fall of 2014. We’ve been working with 8 faith communities to find out if they would like to be a gathering place during the next extreme weather event. Click here for more information.
