  • Working with BIAs on CafeTO

Staff have been working day and night to ensure the safe, fast and effective rollout of the program.

  • Beautifying Bloordale

    When the quarantine began, some of Bloordale residents began to use the laneway to safely get outdoors.  Over time, gradual improvements began to take place.
