Who We Are

Toronto’s waterfront is more than our city’s edge along Lake Ontario – it’s a destination and second neighbourhood for every Torontonian to enjoy.

That’s why more than 30 organizations have come together to form Waterfront for All – as a new citizens group dedicated to preserving and enhancing the entire Toronto waterfront as a unique natural and cultural resources for all of us to enjoy.

We acknowledge that our waterfront is situated in the traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.

Over 25 years ago, the Crombie Commission set out nine principles for Toronto's waterfront revitalization. They are as valid as ever. Our waterfront should be:

  • Clean
  • Green
  • Useable
  • Diverse
  • Open
  • Accessible
  • Connected
  • Affordable
  • Attractive

Waterfront renewal has come a long way, but it’s far from complete. Progress on the waterfront needs to be celebrated and supported by citizens, otherwise it may lose momentum or die altogether.

From Etobicoke to Scarborough, we invite citizens and groups from across Toronto to work together to keep the revitalization and beautification of our waterfront moving forward.

Waterfront for All strives to represent citizens and groups from across Toronto – and we want you to join on this exciting journey.
