Corktown, Toronto eNewsletter for the week of Monday, October 19

ELECTION DAY: It’s election day in Canada. We’re urging all Corktowners — regardless of political stripe — to head out to the polls today and mark a ballot. We were grateful to have many of the candidates in Toronto Centre come out to our most recent CRBA meeting.

If you’re confused about your polling location or what you need to vote, the Elections Canada website can help.

FOOD TRUCK TUESDAY: If you’re looking for an extra tasty post-election lunch tomorrow, head on over to the parking lot outside Workplace One (340 King East) to grab a bite from the Heirloom food truck. They’ll be serving from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Click here for details.

RIVER CITY 3: The third phase of the River City development broke ground last week. This phase, located just south of Underpass Park, will be 29 storeys tall and has a unique design. It’ll be followed by Phase 4, which will complete the development. You can learn more about the groundbreaking, the project and future plans at Urban Toronto.

ON STAGE: Interview with a Demon opens at Alumnae Theatre on November 11. You can get tickets online.

HALLOWEEN IN RIVERSIDE: On Saturday, October 24, join our friends in Riverside for their annual Halloween event. There will be a pumpkin carving contest, a haunted house, a kiddie costume parade and trick-or-treating along Queen East. It runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m — the details are online.


  • The next public meeting of your Corktown Residents & Business Association will be held Tuesday, November 3 at Little Trinity Church Annex (403 King East) from 7 to 9 p.m. We’re excited to welcome representatives from First Gulf developments, who will share with us some details on their plans for the Unilever lands located across the river from Corktown Common. (You can learn more about this project at the Project 21 website.)
