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.

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. Our member organizations include:

  • Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Association
  • Citizens for a Healthy Waterfront
  • CodeBlueTO
  • CommunityAIR
  • Friends of the Spit
  • Gooderham Worts Neighbourhood Association
  • Greater Waterfront Coalition
  • Harbourfront Community Association
  • NoJetsTO
  • St. Lawrence Neighbourhood Association
  • Toronto Boaters Alliance
  • Toronto Island Community Association
  • Toronto Water Taxi Association
  • West Don Lands Committee
  • York Quay Neighbourhood Association


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.
