Urban Growth Centres Boundaries for the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006 Limites des centres de croissance urbaine du Plan de croissance de la région élargie du Golden Horseshoe, 2006

Abstract:
The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006 identifies 25 existing or emerging downtown areas as urban growth centres and establishes policies and minimum density targets to encourage their revitalization as vibrant, transit-oriented nodes. The Province determined the approximate size and location of the urban growth centres. Municipalities then delineated the precise boundaries of the centres in their official plans. This dataset has been compiled based on the delineated boundaries in municipal official plans.
