ANC in Toronto: Scarborough Village Grows in a Positive Direction

Community Story by Anne Makhoul

In her article Anne Makhoul characterizes Scarborough Village as an area of high-rise apartment buildings, large roadways, few amenities, and a community inhabited by a culturally diverse, multilingual population. In her view, there has also been an increase in drug and youth violence. Scarborough Village was selected for the Action for Neighbourhood Change (ANC) project, an initiative focused on bringing together community members to discuss problems in the community and developing a plan for improvement.

Makhoul summarizes the progress made in Scarborough Village between February 2005 and March 2006. The author shares insights provided by residents, organization representatives and project staff, while describing activities undertaken during that 14-month period.
