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.

Paddling Map of Toronto

Chair Ed Hore has been kayaking around the amazing Toronto Waterfront for decades and gets a lot of questions about the best routes, where to launch, where to park, where to rent, and so on. So he recently tried his hand at an annotated Paddling Map of the waterfront that answers at least some of these questions.

Toronto is stunningly beautiful from the water. But always keep in mind it's on a Great Lake. Particularly in unsheltered areas, the Lake can get choppy and rough; weather changes can be unpredictable. Always make sure you paddle within your skill set. If in doubt take some lessons.  There are introductory kayak, canoe and SUP lessons and rentals at Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre and SUP lessons and rentals at various locations across the waterfront. Have fun! 

 

 

  

Speaker Series Presentation, January 25: Toronto's multi-billion project to reduce water pollution

Lou Di Gironimo, General Manager, Toronto Water, gave us a fantastic presentation on January 25, 2022 explaining why a big rainfall can cause Toronto's old combined sewers to overflow untreated into the Lake. There's an ambitious plan to fix the problem at a cost in the billions, involving digging three massive new tunnels, a new hi-tech outfall out in the Lake, plus new pumping and treatment facilities. Construction is underway, but will take many years. We'll post a recording of Lou's presentation shortly.Click here to RSVP.
