"Your Local" North Toronto Sub-Region


As partners of the North, we are focused on:

The future of health care is local.

The Local is a storytelling platform that brings a human dimension to population health data in the Toronto Central LHIN. It tells hyperlocal stories about population health issues and grassroots innovations happening within the Toronto neighbourhoods that make up the LHIN’s five sub-regions.

No data without stories, and no stories without data.



As part of our continuing portrait series of seniors who live alone in North Toronto, we paid a visit to Ms Palmer, a 93-year old resident of Mount Pleasant West.

The majority of neighbourhoods in North Toronto have a higher proportion of seniors living alone compared to the rest of the Toronto Central LHIN. One neighbourhood in particular, Mount Pleasant West, stands above them all. There, a whopping 58% of seniors live alone. 

This portrait series takes you into the lives of three seniors, 81, 92 and 103 years young. Watch and listen as the series explores the themes of friendship, family, and loneliness, and the struggle to remain independent. Learn More...
