ecoNeighbourhood Climate Action Project and more!

Mount Dennis TOWN HALL Wednesday, February 26th

The ecoNeighbourhood Climate Action Project presents its first event! More events funded by Toronto Strong Neighbourhood/ Toronto Live Green grants will be taking place over the next few months.  Did you know that the CIty approved only 15 grants, and two went to projects presented by residents of Mount Dennis? 

Wednesday, February 26 - Town Hall on programs and opportunities provided by three levels of government.
At LEF Industry Street, doors open 6:30 pm.  This is your opportunity to learn about government programs applicable to you, your home, your business, and the organizations that support Mount Dennis.  

Next month, the ecoNeighbourhood summit, a two-day event takes place.
  • March 27 - Registration, Reception, and Showcase of current initiatives in York South -- Weston
  • March 28 - All day conference to develop a community response based on previous two events, plus missed opportunities identified at the conference.

We are currently looking for presenters, facilitators, and volunteers for the March events.
