About the Port Lands Drop-in Centre

Port Lands 2024 October 4 to November 4 Thursdays 4:30 to 8:30 pm Sundays 12 to 5 pm

The Port Lands Drop-in Centre invites you to learn more about the future of the Port Lands. Toronto’s Port Lands is considered one of the largest underdeveloped stretches of downtown waterfront in North America. Up until now we have been unable to make this industrial area a thriving part of our city because portions are at risk of flooding and the soil is contaminated. Through the Port Lands Flood Protection project, Waterfront Toronto is creating two new outlets for the existing river so that floodwaters can run off into the inner harbour instead of damaging the surrounding neighbourhoods. When this project is complete in 2024, we will have opened up 240 hectares of land near downtown Toronto -- a place where people can live, work and play.
