About the Identify ‘N’ Impact Investment Program

Since its creation in 2006 the Identify’N’Impact (INI) Investment program has funded youth-led groups to deliver meaningful opportunities for youth to be involved in their community. INI funded projects help to promote healthy youth development and community safety in the City of Toronto.

 

Funding is used to support youth to lead and deliver projects that will engage other youth. By supporting youth-led groups, the INI program helps create opportunities for youth to develop skills and get the resources they need to be successful.  Up to $10,000 is available for each project for one year, and its expected about 18 – 20 projects will be funded in 2013.

 

To be funded, projects must  show that youth are the leaders in the planning, management and delivery of the project. Funding priority is given to groups and projects that involve youth from and/or based in one of the City’s 13 neighbourhood improvement areas; and/or work with racialized youth, particularly African-Canadian youth

Trees at "Close Avenue Playground"

Posted on June 17, 2013

If you’ve been at the intersection of Close Ave and King Street W, you may have noticed that there are orange dots on may of the trees. Here’s why:

City Staff had a site visit to the “Close Avenue Playground ” to inspect the above ground roots and trees in the playground area. As a result of the inspection it was  discovered that the Ash trees north of the playground are infected by the Emerald Ash Bore (EAB).  They have all  been marked with orange paint to indicate that they are to be taken down in order to control the (EAB) infestation. After they are taken down and stumped they will be replaced with a new species of trees.
