What Corktown Does
For years, 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 our quickly changing area.
Team Lead: Will Meneray
Our businesses make Corktown incredible. From our neighbourhood icons like Fusilli and Morning Glory to newer favourites like Odin and Aviary, Corktown is becoming a great place to do business. Our Business Success Working Group is finding ways to best support our local businesses and make sure they have every opportunity to succeed.

Development and Construction
Team Lead: Socrates Apallas
Corktown continues to grow and we want to make sure that how it grows makes sense for everyone. Our Development Group works closely with surrounding neighbourhoods and the Toronto Centre Councillors Office to make sure our any new building projects fit our area.
Team Lead: Cory Lemos
Our Heritage Working Group 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.
