Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust
Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust (PNLT) is a not-for-profit community land trust in Parkdale led by a group of residents and organizations trying to protect the social, cultural and economic diversity of Parkdale by redefining how land is used and developed.
Through the community land trust model, PNLT owns land and assures it is used to meet the needs of the community by leasing it to non-profit partners who can provide affordable housing, furnish spaces for social enterprises and non-profit organizations, and offer urban agriculture and open space. Also, PNLT promotes community participation in guiding how land is used to benefit the community and keep it affordable and diverse.
PNLT is currently run by the board of directors that has been elected by our members and consists of residents and representatives of local organizations that represent the diversity of Parkdale.
