DTAH was selected by the City of Toronto to lead a diverse design team in the development of the first Master Plan for Toronto Island. For thousands of years, the Toronto Islands have been a place for healing and ceremony for the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and other diverse Indigenous communities. The Toronto Island Park Master Plan will ensure the park can be a cherished gathering place for generations to come. It will be a long-term planning document that is being co-created with Indigenous rights holders, local communities, and the public. It will outline a Vision, Values, Guiding Principles, and Big Moves to guide change and investment in Toronto Island Park over many years.
