Community Office Officially Open


Our new Community Office recently opened at 1240 Bloor Street West. It will continue to be open every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am-6pm. I wanted to take this opportunity to share the good news and outline how this space will be used to serve Ward 18 residents going forward.

It was a picture perfect spring day on May 2nd for the Official Opening celebration. Residents came from the surrounding Bloordale area and across Ward 18 for this event; which featured a BBQ, live musical performances, face painting and plenty of good neighbourly conversation. We temporarily closed Margueretta Street from Bloor to the laneway to accommodate hundreds of residents who joined the fun. Activities also took place in Susan Tibaldi Parkette as well as on Brock Street, where Bloordale Play Day festivities were being held in conjunction with our office opening. There was something for everyone and everyone was welcome to take part.

Everyone is also welcome to take part in the new Community Office. It is a place to meet me and my staff with regard to local issues and a space to serve our many community groups. It represents my continued and enhanced commitment to our community by providing a consistent presence in the heart of our neighbourhood. It promotes a strong connection to the issues that matter most the Ward 18 residents and quick responses to local concerns. The door is open for you to walk in and share your ideas for local projects and ways we can make Ward 18 an even better place to live, work and play.

In addition to these local hours, you can also contact my City Hall office every week day from 8:30am to 4:30pm. By working together in our community and at City Hall, there is no limit to what Ward 18 can accomplish.

I always welcome your feedback and ideas, so please do not hesitate to contact me by coming for a visit when you're in the neighbourhood. You can also call 416-392-7012 or email [email protected] any time.

I look forward to seeing you in the community; whether at my office, a community meeting, or at the many local events taking place this spring and summer.

In the meantime, you can view photos from the grand opening event on my facebook page.
