Public Ontario Place
Hi, I'm Igor, I'm a disabled person, urban planner, and proud immigrant who is passionate about the people of our city and my community of Spadina-Fort York.
I was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, to working-class parents who fled to Canada during the early 1990s Balkan conflict. From a young age I have always had a strong desire to serve and build communities. After completing my master’s degrees in geography and urban planning, I continued my work as a volunteer, community builder and planner in both the public and private sectors.
From my work on the Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods roundtable to the Chair of the Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit I have a proven track record of building consensus towards progressive policies. My efforts over the last decade have resulted in and support of accessible public transportation, cycling infrastructure, new affordable housing options, increased community art and murals, innovative family-friendly developments, public space activations, and the reclaiming and repurposing of green spaces for community uses.
Join us as we reimagine Spadina Fort-York and establish a bold vision for a better city.
