What does density look like in the Greater Golden Horseshoe?

Visualizing Density was created by the Canadian Urban Institute with support from the Ontario Growth Secretariat through the Places to Grow Implementation Fund. 


Visualizing Density is a pilot project created to help planners, designers, private-sector builders, elected officials and residents’ groups design more complete communities. The project, launched today by the Canadian Urban Institute, aims to contribute to the on-going conversation about managing growth and building great communities in Ontario.
