Environment and Diversity Project: Toronto Native Bus Tour
The Sustainability Network and Toronto Green Community would like to invite you to a "Native Bus Tour of Toronto" on October 13, 2011. This event is a direct result of some of the discussions that transpired during the "Collective Impact! The Environment & Our Diverse Society" Conference held last June.
When: October 13, 2011
Time: 9 am - 4 pm
Where: All throughout Toronto, beginning at the Native Canadian Centre, 16 Spadina Road (just north of Bloor)
The event will start with the Native Canadian Centre’s three-hour bus tour to learn more about indigenous history and presence in Toronto through some pre-contact and historical landmarks that are still relevant to and used by Aboriginal peoples living in this city today. The tour begins at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto and some of the highlights include Lakeshore, High Park, Casa Loma, Yonge Street, Rouge Hill, Old Fort York and more.
Afterwards, participants will have an opportunity to talk and network with each other and representatives from various Toronto-based organizations serving the Aboriginal community, both during a catered lunch and through some group discussions in the afternoon at the Centre for Social Innovation (215 Spadina Ave).
