Event Details

Walk through Heritage Toronto's first plaque district and take a deep dive into the industrial heritage and everyday experiences of working people in Toronto's east end. From the 1910s to the 1980s, thousands of people worked in the Dundas and Carlaw area. They made chewing gum, musical instruments, toys, clothing, and many other products that were shipped across Canada and around the world. Today, the neighbourhood is a thriving residential, cultural, and commercial centre with many notable buildings that have been adapted from their original use. Discover the area’s industrial past and learn how the modern neighbourhood was created.


Start Point: John Chang Neighbourhood Park (50 Colgate Avenue)

End Point: 388 Carlaw Avenue

 

Accessibility: Certain portions of this tour include walking on uneven terrain. Due to ongoing construction in the area, tour accessibility may be affected. Please contact Heritage Toronto at 416-338-0684 or info@heritagetoronto.org for more information.
