Our Strong Neighbourhoods Steeles-L'Amoreaux

ANC works with residents to promote positive changes in their community through the development of a community vision and supporting residents in the implementation of an annual action plan to reach that vision. This has resulted in a variety of resident led projects that are working on programming, safety, education, food security and much more. ANC’s have also implemented Resident Action Grants where money is made available to resident led projects. In this past year RAGS continued to support projects such as a Sewing group, a knowledge sharing trip to Niagara Falls and a sports club. Hundreds of Residents have also been actively involved in the Poverty Reduction Talks happening across the City.

Fatima Abdille: Placement student of ANC Steeles-L’Amoreaux and resident of the community

“Every child, regardless of their social location deserves to have the opportunity to be involved in their community engagement. My experience in both Silver Spring Park Reading Circle and Beyond Academics has taught me so far that in order for me to create social change and empower these children; I need to be more proactive in the solution.”

 

 

Steeles L’Amoreaux Strength in Partnership

 

Steeles L’Amoreaux Strength in Partnership (SSIP) is a group of organizations and residents that works to strengthen the Steeles L’Amoreaux neighbourhood and make it a better place to live. The group was formed in 2006.

Steeles L’Amoreaux is bound by Steeles Ave. E. to the north, Sheppard Ave. E. to the south, Victoria Park Ave. to the west and Kennedy Rd. to the east.

 

History of SSIP

SSIP started as a group called the Steeles L’Amoreaux Neighbourhood Action Partnership (SL NAP). It was formed after Steeles L’Amoreaux became a ‘priority neighbourhood’ under Toronto’s original Strong Neighbourhood Strategy in 2005. In 2013 the NAP changed its name to Steeles L’Amoreaux Strength in Partnership (SSIP) with more emphasis on being a community-driven network, SSIP began looking for more residents to get involved.

Though Steeles L’Amoreaux is no longer a ‘priority neighbourhood’ under the current Toronto Strong Neighbourhood Strategy 2020, there’s still lots of opportunity to strengthen community building.

 

SSIP works to

  • Address community issues and challenges
  • Connect residents with resources such as programs and services in the neighbourhood
  • Strengthen residents' voice in shaping the community
