The City of Toronto is holding an open house on the proposed Downtown Plan, where you can drop by to gather information, speak with staff and share comments.

The proposed Downtown Plan will serve as a blueprint to guide growth in the heart of Toronto and the development of infrastructure to support it over the next 25 years. The Plan seizes on the opportunities that come with intensification, while addressing the challenges often associated with growth. To guide implementation, the Downtown Plan will include five supporting Infrastructure Strategies that address parks and public realm, mobility, community services and facilities, energy, and water.

This open house will provide an overview of the proposed Downtown Plan and the five Infrastructure Strategies. Please drop in at any time, share your thoughts, and learn more about how the plan for our growing Downtown will improve liveability for all Torontonians.

Treaties Recognition Week

Treaties Recognition Week

The CityPlace Residents Association is pleased to support the commemoration November 5-11 as Treaties Recognition Week.

A Traditional Territory Land Acknowledgement of the Indigenous First Nations, Metis and Inuit presence through the creation of a miniature village with longhouses, teepees and more is located in the CityPlace Community near the planters on the sidewalk by Jumblies Theatre 132 Fort York (between Dan Leckie Way and Queens Wharf Rd).

We were made to understand that “the miniature village was created a few years ago by Ojibway artist Philip Cote with diverse CityPlace community members of all ages. It was a way for people to chat and learn some Indigenous history while making art. [Jumblies Theatre] used the village in many performances, events, photographs and installations.”

As a fitting way to commemorate Treaties Recognition Week, we are calling for the installation of a Traditional Territory Land Acknowledgement plaque in Canoe Landing Park.
