What Corktown Does
For years, the Corktown has been working with our local businesses and residents to build a sustainable, people-oriented neighbourhood. Find out below what we’ve been working on recently and how you can volunteer in the neighbourhood you love.
Small Business Committee
Our businesses make Corktown incredible. We have many legacy businesses that have been in Corktown for decades. We are also seeing new businesses locate in the neighbourhood more and more often. Our Small Business Committee is finding ways to best support our local businesses and find out how we can do our job better.
We’re putting a much larger emphasis on how we communicate these days. The world has gone digital and we need to be community leaders in this space. Our 2019 Marketing Committee is finding new ways to drive Tourism, support our businesses, and maintain communications about our community oriented projects.
Corktown continues to grow and we want to make sure that how it grows makes sense for everyone. Our Development Committee works closely with surrounding neighbourhoods and the Toronto Centre Councillors Office to make sure our any new building projects fit our area.
Our Heritage Committee is dedicated to keeping the neighbourhood beautiful and memorable. There’s a lot of history here that residents and visitors love – let’s keep it intact. We understand that developments need to happen and that they can co-exist when done properly.
Events and Outreach
Aside from our monthly update meetings, we host an annual Holiday Party. 2019 and beyond we’ll be featuring regular events at some of your favourite restaurants and cafes. In Fall 2019, we’ll be hosting Toronto Centre and Spadina Fort-York All Candidates Meetings’ for the 2019 Federal Election.
This year we’ll be bringing back the Underpass Park Farmers Market and launching Underpass Apparel.
If you love to throw a party, get in touch to help us produce some great neighbourhood events.
