PCED is hosting a series of Community Benefits Workshops for Parkdale on Wednesday August 30th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm and Thursday September 7th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm*.
Come learn about new developments arriving in Parkdale, discuss how they will impact the neighbourhood, and collectively develop ideas for how these developments can be best leveraged to benefit our community.
Building on workshops held earlier this summer with ESL students and the PARC Ambassador and Co-op Cred program, these workshops will provide a platform for community members to express their thoughts and suggestions on how to ensure that new developments in Parkdale benefit the local community and strengthen its four overarching values: Inclusiveness, Affordability, Diversity and Equity. The workshops will help to establish a set of community demands that developers must adhere to when building in Parkdale.
Spaces are limited. RSVP encouraged but not required: https://parkdale-community-benefits-workshops.eventbrite.ca
*Please note that these workshops are identical and participants need only sign up for one workshop.
In addition, PCED is holding a youth workshop (13-24 years old) on Thursday August 31st from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Healing Centre on the second floor of PARC (1499 Queen St W). If you would like to sign up and participate in this workshop, contact Mercedes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
