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.

Speaker Series: 46 kilometers of Waterfront

Toronto's waterfront stretches 46 km from Etobicoke Creek in the west to the Rouge River in the east. Most of it is run by two city agencies: Parks, Forestry and Recreation (PFR) and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA). Christina Iacovino of PFR and Johanna Kyte of TRCA gave great talks on March 28, 2023 on the many projects in progress, and how the City runs all those parks.

Don't close Harbourfront Rink!


In mid-January 2023, Harbourfront quietly announced it was going to remove its iconic skating rink, and replace it with a concrete "plaza", due to lack of funds. Yet Harbourfront had recently received a $20 million federal grant. The Community wasn't consulted. All three elected representatives of the various levels of government (MP Kevin Vuong, MPP Chris Glover, and City Councillor Ausma Malik) have objected. Harbourfront appears to be going ahead anyway. WFA and other community groups are meeting with the federal government. Please help by signing Kevin Vuong's petition here directed to the House of Commons.
