Changes to Black Creek Pioneer Village
Toronto's Black Creek Pioneer Village is undergoing major changes, starting with a name change to 'The Village at Black Creek' in early 2024. There are also plans to redevelop the parking lot to expand the museum and visitor center, aimed at revitalizing the site and aligning with city goals. A study by CreateTO, in collaboration with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), will explore these changes and present development options for approval by the TRCA's Board of Directors.

Applications are now open for the City of Toronto’s PollinateTO Grants program. Through the program, the City offers grants of up to $5,000 to support community-led initiatives that result in the creation or expansion of pollinator habitat on public and private lands in Toronto.
Projects eligible for funding include those that create new pollinator habitats in green spaces, such as schoolyards and parks, and those that expand existing gardens with pollinator-friendly plants. Projects that create pollinator pathways (multiple gardens on a residential street) are also eligible for funding. Projects must be visible to the public and educate and/or engage the community.
Community groups, not-for-profit organizations, student groups, parent councils, Indigenous groups and other resident-led groups are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, October 25.
Interested residents are invited to attend an information session on Wednesday, October 4, to learn more about the grants and applications process. More information is available on the PollinateTO Grants webpage: www.toronto.ca/pollinateto/.
Public Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Network Study: upcoming events and public survey
The City of Toronto is developing a Public Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Network Study to help ensure that public charging will be available where and when it is needed across Toronto, to achieve our goals for sustainable transportation and EV uptake. We’re asking for input from all residents - current and potential EV owners, and drivers and non-drivers – to help us identify where and when public EV charging will be needed to meet demand as more people and businesses switch to electric vehicles and to better understand how public EV charging fits into an equitable low-carbon transportation system in Toronto.
