The long-vacant downstairs at 35 King St will soon host a branch of the COSTI immigrant services organization.
COSTI’s new Weston campus will provide help with career planning, youth employment, settlement, and vocational training. On January 26 from 3:00 to 6:00, COSTI will have an open-house.
While the expansion of COSTI is certainly good news, it probably means the end of a long-hoped-for expansion of George Brown College into Weston. George Brown had studied coming here and moving into 35 King, and local politicians had been boosters. Little has been said about the plan in the past year, however, and the plan seems to have withered.
