The current situation

There has been a major shift in the shopping behaviour away from local communities in favour of big-box stores, commons and mega-malls.

This shift has a negative impact on community businesses and their residents as economic and social activity moves out of the area.

The goal of the Corner Store Program

The Corner Store Program aims to re-establish the neighbourhood shopping centre as a hub of activity in the community through improvements to City infrastructure, the buildings and the businesses within.

To do this, the program will attempt to create more walkable, vibrant and connected communities, help businesses thrive and grow and beautify the space.
