News from Toronto Community Housing  |  October 2014

Record investments in capital repairs


Residents of more than 335 Toronto Community Housing buildings across the city will benefit from record investments in repairs to their homes starting early next year. This follows the approval of budgeted commitments for $61.5 million in planned capital projects to begin in the first three months of 2015 alone. 

The approval by the Board of Directors is the first portion of the $175 million capital program planned for 2015, which is an increase of almost 300 per cent from the $60 million capital program in 2013.

Our capital repair needs

Over the next 10 years, Toronto Community Housing needs to complete over $2.6 billion in capital repairs to keep our buildings from reaching a critical state of disrepair.

Capital repair dollars help fund repairs to building elements such as:

  • Roofs and exteriors
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Life safety systems
  • Plumbing and electrical systems
  • Common areas and in-suite repairs to homes
 To find out more about our capital repair needs, visit the State of Good Repair page on our website.
