Culture

Celebrate apartment tower neighbourhoods as diverse, dynamic and resilient parts of our cities.

Canada’s apartment towers were built as symbols of modernism and progress of their time, a key aspect of post-war prosperity and the national coming of age. Today they are among the world’s most diverse and international communities, home to our ‘Arrival Cities’ where we welcome the world. Too often dismissed, our legacy of Apartment Tower Neighbourhoods provides a remarkably rich cultural foundation upon which to explore, discover, and build.

It is the aim of the Tower Renewal Partnership to aid in overcoming the cultural amnesia that often surrounds these towers and celebrate their place in our past, present and future.
