Who we are
The Toronto Lands Corporation (TLC), a wholly owned subsidiary and exclusive real estate services provider to the Toronto District School Board (TDSB).
Following the amalgamation of seven local school boards in 1998, the TDSB became the owner of one of the largest public real estate portfolios in the City of Toronto. Realizing that managing a portfolio of this nature and size requires specific expertise, is complex and time consuming, TDSB established TLC in 2008 to professionally manage these important assets. TLC’s recently expanded mandate now gives us the responsibility to manage all Board wide real estate interests for the purpose of redevelopment of sites, land use planning, property disposition & acquisition, leasing, partnerships and the integration of community hubs. This new mandate makes TLC the first point of contact for all parties interested in inquiring about the availability of, or access to, approximately 600 TDSB properties for the purposes of leasing, land use partnerships, public infrastructure projects or any other equity proposals.
With specific expertise in real estate, land use planning and leasing, TLC’s intent is to provide opportunities that ensure the accommodation and well-being of TDSB students in modern and innovative schools, preserve public assets where there is a demonstrated need and collaborate to build communities where people live, learn, work and play.
