Mount Dennis campus meeting this week

The Toronto Community Benefits Network will be hosting a meeting on creating attracting a post-secondary campus to Mount Dennis.

Since 2020, the Mount Dennis Community Association’s ecoNeighbourhood Initiative has been working with government and local partners to define a community vision statement for attracting a city-recommended post-secondary campus institution into the Mount Dennis neighbourhood.

The potential location for the campus is envisioned by members of the local community as part of the area across from the Mount Dennis LRT/bus/UP Express station south of Eglinton Avenue West and west of Black Creek Drive. Choice Properties, owners of a large part of that land, has recently submitted a district development proposal including 7 high towers for this area, and community benefits discussions are beginning to take shape…

The session will include introductory words from local City Councillor Frances Nunziata and TCBN Executive Director, Rosemarie Powell and a presentation by Rick Ciccarelli from the Mount Dennis Community Association’s Eco Neighbourhood Initiative.
