Toronto Neighbourhood Summit – April 6/19 

April 4, 2019 


We are a city of neighbourhoods. When neighbours come together and collaborate, their communities become stronger and healthier. The lifeblood of this vibrancy is our volunteer-led neighbourhood associations! The TANGO map illustrates who these groups are and the communities they represent. Now, we’re inviting ALL of these groups together for a one-day summit to share ideas, learn from each other, and discuss ways that we can work together across the entire city.
