WHAT IS THE HUB? The Thorncliffe Park Community Hub (TPCH) is a safe, accessible, multi-service, community-centered space where Thorncliffe Park residents can access health and social services, programs, and community spaces. The Hub will be designed to keep community members better connected to a portfolio of medical and social initiatives that will support residents in living a more optimal and well-balanced life.

WHERE IS THE HUB?The Hub is located on the 2nd floor of the East York Town Centre, above St. Michael’s Kidney Care Centre. Once up and running, the Hub will serve 22,000+ community members and will be connected to local health and social service providers.  

WHY DO WE NEED A HUB? In 2014, local organizations, residents, and stakeholders undertook a Health Care Gap Analysis of Thorncliffe Park. It quickly became evident that, given the population’s size, complexity and diversity, there are insufficient local health services. Many living in Thorncliffe Park are in poorer health than other Toronto residents. Social and economic conditions in the community such as high un(der)employment, isolation, language and cultural barriers, overcrowded living conditions and the stresses of resettlement contribute to the neighbourhood’s health challenges. The Gap Analysis concluded thatthere is a need for comprehensive, coordinated primary health care that is responsive to the populations’ unique health and social needs and integrated in the neighbourhood.

The governance structure is currently interim and must be reviewed through community consultations. The proposed structure consists of a TPCH advisory layer, a decision-making Steering Committee, and the TPCH Management Team. Residents, grassroots, primary care providers, service partners, anchor agencies, the leaseholder, donors, and other champions and partners of the Thorncliffe Park community are part of the governance structure of TPCH.
