Tower Renewal Partnership

Revitalizing communities through research, advocacy, and action.

The Tower Renewal Partnership (TRP) is a multisectoral collaboration led by the Centre for Urban Growth and Renewal (CUGR), Maytree, Evergreen, United Way Greater Toronto and DKGI. We are working to establish a framework through which Tower Neighbourhood Renewal can be scaled across Canada. We do this by supporting public and private stakeholder itineraries, conducting applied research, convening core stakeholders, and implementing demonstration projects. We also bring together best-in-class practices in energy retrofit, planning policy, green financing, and social entrepreneurship.

The Tower Renewal Partnership has relied on a broad network of supporting partners, including: the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, the City of Toronto, Toronto Public Health, the Government of Ontario, Municipal Partners throughout Ontario, University of Toronto, Toronto Atmospheric Fund, Metcalf Foundation, Atkinson Foundation, and the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. Our technical project partners include NBLC and Transsolar KlimaEngineering.
