    The ARA would like to thank Workin’ Moms Productions IV Inc. for their generous donation of $500. They filmed in the Annex this summer. We ask film and production companies to make donations to the ARA in recognition of the disruption that filming can cause in our neighbourhoods.

    Coalition of Residents' Associations Opposes U of T Proposal for Planetarium Site

    The Annex Residents' Association, as part of a coalition of residents' associations, is opposed to a University of Toronto proposal for the Planetarium site south of the ROM on Queen's Park. Their concerns and objections were raised at a first public meeting on June 12, 2019, and in a letter to City Planning and Councillor Layton. As a result a working group will be formed under the leadership of Councillor Layton and will include members of the coalition, City planners, the architect and U of T planning staff. It is expected to meet for the first time in early Fall.

    Last Minute Cancellation

    Saturday’s Open House at the 348 Davenport Women’s Shelter Open House has been cancelled

    YWCA Toronto and the City of Toronto say the buildings are not ready, so they are postponing the Open House. It will be rescheduled for a later date when neighbours will be able to picture the shelter in action. 

    Please pass word of the cancellation along to any of your friends. YWCA Toronto and the City of Toronto apologize for any inconvenience caused by this last-minute change.

    Welcome the New Women’s Shelter

    You’ve seen the renovations at 348 Davenport from the outside.  On December the 29th, you can come and see them from the inside.


    The women’s shelter at 348 Davenport will be providing shelter for 56 homeless women, linking them to services and helping them to find a permanent home. 

    Toronto. The shelter is being operated by YWCA Toronto, which has served Toronto’s women and girls for almost 150 years. It currently operates the 1st Stop Woodlawn Housing for women who are homeless or in immediate crisis, two shelters for women fleeing abuse, and permanent housing at four locations.

    YWCA Toronto and the City of Toronto is inviting all of shelter’s neighbours to a preview, to view the facility, meet the operators and ask questions.

    When:           Saturday, December 29th 
                          1:30 - 3:30 p.m. 

    Where:          348 Davenport (just south of Dupont)

    When the Snow Flies

    Before the first big snowfall graces Toronto, the Annex Residents’ Association (ARA) wishes to remind everyone to clear their sidewalks. It makes a big difference for young and old – for parents with strollers and residents who have mobility challenges.

    For seniors and those with disabilities, the City of Toronto makes it a lot easier to deal with the snow. The City will clear city sidewalks outside their property for free. Just download the form and mail it in.

    As 2018 ends, and 2019 begins, the ARA wishes all of the residents of the Annex a Happy Holiday.

    The Latest at Bloor Street United

    The Annex Residents’ Association (ARA) is not happy about it, but an important meeting is going to be held next Monday, December 17, 7 – 9 PM, about the proposed development at Bloor Street United, 300 Bloor Street West at Huron.

    The ARA argued this does not give residents enough notice, but the meeting is required by the City’s rules.

    The good news is that during three community consultations and five meetings of a working group, the ARA has had a positive impact on the proposed development. The building has been reduced in height.

    The revised application is for a 27-storey mixed use building with 251 residential units and two separate mezzanines in the base building

    For more details, see the City’s Preliminary Report.

    The continued involvement of local residents is vital to ensure the proposed development evolves to reflect community wishes.

                        Date:     Monday, December 17, 2018

                        Time:    7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

                        Place:   Bloor Street United Church, McClure Hall,
                                     (300 Bloor St. West)
