SCA is a voluntary, not-for-profit Community Association representing the views of residents in matters that affect our area of Toronto in the former city of “North York”. Since our formation in the 1970s, many people have been pro-active to ensure Silverview remains a great community to live.
Please visit the various sections of our Web Site and come back often as we keep the site current with important information for Members and potential Members.
Silverview has a number of quality schools, both Public and Catholic nearby, making it a great place to educate our children.
Even in the heart of the city we are lucky to have trees, parks and open areas. This includes Newtonbrook and Silverview parks. We also work to have new developments provide green space for the community.
With lots of shopping nearby, a short walk to the TTC, not far from the highway, it’s a very convenient place to live.

Join Our Community
The continued strength of any organization is often measured by its numbers. We always asked “How many people do you represent?”
The Annual SCA Membership Fee is $20.00 per family. If you feel as many households do that SCA must continue to be active and strong, renew or take out your membership now! Membership is effective until the annual meeting in the each fall.
The original concerned activity of the homeowners in this area started with residents along Bowerbank and Bishop being upset and alarmed by the Subway parking lot development in the Hydro right-of-way and how it might infringe upon their comfort and living standards. This simple concern and activity was a leading factor in the formation of the “Silverview Homeowners Association” on 1974 and was incorporated in 1976. The original Association was concerned primarily with “homeowners” and their property valuations as construction and the Yonge Street development exploded upon the community. Many of the original members had children in the Silverview Elementary School at 24 Silverview Drive and this provided an even stronger community involvement.
As the years and experience grew, the executive of the Association realized that the community had changed a great deal – many of our residents were not homeowners, but were renters and tenants. This mix is our current community. In order to better recognize that homeowners, renters and tenants are now the residents in what was once a “single unit” home community, we changed the name to the Silverview Community Association. This short tale brings us to being the current SCA. This is the Association that we want to make vibrant in our community and to have stronger community participation.
