First Community Action Meeting, and RSVP for Second Meeting April 2nd

Our Place Initiative held an extremely successful first Community Action meeting at the Etobicoke Civic Centre on February 26th. Over forty people (including community leaders from such organizations as LAMP and the South Etobicoke Transit Action Committee) gathered to share ideas, passions and visions for a better Etobicoke. Featured speaker Sabina Ali inspired with stories of the transformation she has led in her Thorncliffe Park community over the past seven years.

The event was covered by the Etobicoke Guardian - click HERE to read the article.

The next Our Place Community Action meeting will be held at the Etobicoke Civic Centre again, on April 2nd, 2015, from 7:00 pm til 9:00 pm. We will be outlining our first campaign (an Etobicoke transit petition), breaking into subcommittees and discussing a 'signature event' for the summer, potentially a weekly Art Fair.

Who are we?

Saturday, March 25th, Our Place Initiative celebrated Earth Hour 2017 with an amazing group of Etobicoke residents at Centennial Park. We were blessed with relatively clear skies, a wonderful turnout, and had a great walk up to the top of Centennial Hill.             

Anticipation, fun and excitement are the best ways to describe our first successful movie in the park event at Centennial Park. There was live music, games, prizes and to top it off, the Lego Movie! Everywhere you looked, there were smiling families and new friends being made.  

 OPI'sPI's annual butterfly has turned out to be one of our most          popular events! On May 29 we had almost 400 people come out to LUSH for a day of family FUN and to pick up some Milkweed - the only plant the Monarch Butterfly lays its eggs...
