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. We've come a long way in revitalizing our waterfront, but much more work lies ahead.

That’s why over 20 organizations have come together to form Waterfront for All – as a new citizens group for everyone interested in the future of Toronto's waterfront. We need your help to grow - from Etobicoke to Scarborough, from North York to the islands. Whether as a resident or as a group, everyone is invited to join.

Toronto Star: The City needs to address the surge in paddling

"During COVID-19, there’s been a surge in people paddling Toronto’s waterfront. The city wants to make access easier", says the headline of this front-page story in the Toronto Star on April 4, 2021. The story quotes WfA Chair Ed Hore (who also supplied the photographs), and highlights the efforts of Ward 14 City Councillor Paula Fletcher, who's pushing City staff to look into locations for watercraft storage.

The Star's caption on the photo above reads: "Virgil Cheung kayaks on Toronto's waterfront. The number of non-motorized watercraft used at Toronto's waterfront is rising, and the city is looking to provide more storage to community members."

The Island Airport is for Sale

The Island Airport is for sale.

Today's news seems to confirm the Airport isn't financially feasible. The Tripartite Agreement, the lease agreement governing the airport, expires in 2033.  Should it be renewed? Any buyer wanting to run an airport on the Island will demand such an extension. But are there better uses of the 215 acre site? It's time for a public consultation on the future of the Airport.  Our thoughts.
