The Canary District


Forming a key part of the West Don Lands revitalization master plan, this community was initially developed as the Pan Am/ParaPan Am Games Athletes' Village that housed over 8,000 athletes, coaches and support teams during the Pan Am Games and 2,000 during the ParaPan Am Games. Four architecture firms were responsible for setting design and construction standards on behalf of Infrastructure Ontario and for the distribution of density and programme based upon City of Toronto Zoning By-laws. Accessibility and affordability were key components of our team's involvement.
