dc.description.abstractRedevelopment of Toronto’s neighbourhoods is guided by planning policies that are driven by capital interest. These policies guide processes of gentrification - driving up property prices and rents, increasing privatization of spaces – all which is changing the physical, social and economic composition of the city’s communities. This changing composition poses spatial injustice issues for its inhabitants. Marginalized populations are excluded from decision-making processes and left displaced and dispossessed. This research looks at the role of urban development, planning policies and dominant decision-making processes in the redevelopment of the waterfront community of Mimico. While there are many injustices that have resulted from this, the loss of the right to the waterfront by its marginalized population is the principal injustice that this paper has focused on since Mimico’s waterfront defines the community, and its community should define its waterfront.en_US
