The Finch LRT is bringing growth and change to the Jane-Finch neighbourhood. Corner Commons aims to host public conversations and events about the new developments and investments coming to Jane-Finch, the potential impacts on the neighbourhood, and how community members can get involved. We also hope that Corner Commons will serve as a model and catalyst for creating more community-designed and operated spaces in the future.
This parking lot in the Jane-Finch community has long been used as an informal gathering place and rallying point for local residents, grassroots groups, and community organizations. Over the years, people of all ages and backgrounds have come together here for rallies, community celebrations, and performances. Corner Commons is a community-led project that aims to honour these uses and enhance the parking lot’s potential for hosting and supporting a range of activities.
