Green Streets Toronto aims to advance the application of natural infrastructure (NI) along road-ways and sidewalks. NI solutions used in Green Streets are designed to treat stormwater at the source by replicating natural drainage systems, potentially eliminating the need for stormwater management systems that rely on grey infrastructure.

NI projects completed by Green Streets include the Queensway Sustainable Sidewalk, which uses tree planting technology to treat stormwater runoff, while Fairford Parkette relies on bioretention facilities to absorb and filter stormwater.
