The revitalization of Toronto’s waterfront provides the city, the province and the country with an excellent opportunity to ensure that Toronto remains among the best places in the world to live, work and visit. Revitalization is a significant key to our future prosperity and Canada’s much envied standard of living.
Following the release of the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Task Force’s report in March 2000, the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, and the City of Toronto jointly announced their support for the creation of Waterfront Toronto (formerly Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation) to oversee and lead waterfront renewal.
The development of successful waterfront projects in other cities such as London, New York, and Barcelona, has shown that a separate corporation with a strong mandate to coordinate and oversee an integrated strategy is crucial to making waterfront revitalization a reality. Waterfront Toronto was formally established in the fall of 2001 and was up and running in February 2002.
