The Cabbagetown Residents
We have particular need for people who like to help co-ordinate community events, book keeping or who have interest liaising with the City of Toronto on issues both local and broad, but there’s always room to pursue other passions that are in residents’ best interests (social, economic or environmental).
Please visit our site for more information. If you are interested, please email email@example.com.

Toronto Police Community Meeting
These open meetings are very important for informing the Community Toronto Police Service (TPS) Officers assigned to our neighbourhood about the needs you think should be addressed. They also help community members obtain information about conditions in the neighbourhood observed by Community Officers and efforts being made by the TPS to help us. Please attend and share in this community safety effort.
On May 5-7th, Toronto’s free festival of community walking conversations returns. More information on participating or leading a walk is available on the website.
Corktown Commons Spring Cleaning
Friends of Corktown Commons are holding a community clean up on March 25 at 10am. Bags, gloves and trash pickers provided. Meet at 10am at the Pavilion.
Wildlife in the City
As of April 1, it will be illegal to feed wildlife in Toronto (bird feeders excluded).
Feeding wildlife may seem harmless, but it can have serious impacts to both animals and the community. Here are a few reasons why:
- When wild animals are fed by humans, it conditions them to expect food from people and may increase their proximity tolerance, putting both people and animals at risk.
- Human food is very unhealthy for animals. Wild animals are skilled foragers and hunters and can find sources of higher quality food on their own.
- Wild animals do not need our handouts. Letting animals use their own natural instincts is the only kindness they need.
- Feeding and disturbing wild animals is prohibited under City bylaws
