It All Begins With Space

The SPACE Coalition advocates for welcoming, affordable accessible, and equitable access to public space for all residents. We believe that access to public space, including schools and municipal facilities, is the cornerstone of healthy, vibrant neighbourhoods.

With key support from Social Planning Toronto, the SPACE Coalition is diverse group of city and provincial organizations, community groups and individuals that aims to maximize community use of public space.
