On the Humber River Tour, you will visit locations such as Etienne Brule Park, see the murals by Elder Phil Cote at Old Mill Subway Station, learn about local plant medicines, and hopefully spot some salmon during the fall salmon run up the Humber River. 


First Story Toronto is a grassroots Indigenous community-based organization that is focused on researching and sharing Toronto’s vast and enduring history and geography of Indigenous presence in Toronto and the surrounding area via popular educational initiatives such as storytelling tours and events (both virtual and in-person) as well smartphone and other online applications. First Story Toronto is led by a committee of mostly Indigenous scholars, artists, Elders, and community leaders, and like many other grassroots organizations, we are a mostly volunteer-driven and therefore have had limited capacity to sustain large-scale initiatives.

This day-long workshop aims to put participants to work in dissecting the obstacles from a multidisciplinary perspective and identifying potential processes to help design teams find better carbon responsible solutions.

 

Understanding the different points of view from professionals involved with a potential building project, and how those points of view impact, conflict with, or relate to each other are among the workshop objectives.

 

Participants are expected to have background knowledge of the issues and to take an active part in the moderated discussions. This workshop encourages the participation of a variety of stakeholders, including architects, engineers, policy makers, building owners, developers, property managers, financial partners etc. CAHP hopes to develop a written statement from the session to encourage the adoption of better industry practices.

Explore downtown Toronto’s vast eastern waterfront where evidence of the area’s industrial past – like the sprawling decommissioned Hearn Generating Station, landmark chimney stacks, as well as the ship channel and turning basin are providing identity and a sense of place for the substantial revitalization about to emerge on the lands adjacent to the massive public infrastructure project currently underway to create a new man-made mouth for the Don River as it meets Toronto’s inner harbour, in a form that is intended to mitigate the impacts of climate change and current flood impacts to Toronto’s waterfront. Learn about the planning framework developed for this ambitious project and get up close to see the development of a new river channel currently underway

Canada’s National Ballet School/Project Grand Jete – A Case Study of Urban Densification and Adaptive Reuse 


Join project architects GBCA for a behind-the-scenes exploration of two adjacent heritage developments that together make up the campus of Canada’s National Ballet School. Over 10 heritage buildings (spread between the Jarvis and Maitland Streets sites) were retained in situ and in their entirety and were successfully adaptively reused in the early 2000s. After 15 years, the developments still stand as exemplary models of urban density and infill with striking heritage conservation, whereby innovative planning and thoughtful conservation strategies resulted in an ensemble of heritage and contemporary architecture. This field session will provide details on the multifaceted development strategies, while allowing participants a chance to see the complex in active use and hear reflections from the users.

Revealing Value: Adapting Two Downtown Commercial Heritage Buildings

?

This field session takes participants to two downtown commercial heritage buildings that are currently undergoing large-scale revitalization: 21 Dundas Sq and 211 Yonge Street. The tour will explore how these spaces are being designed to align with contemporary needs and current building codes, while also exposing their hidden heritage for environmental and economic benefit. Participants will learn about the strategies implemented to create sustainable and adaptable spaces for diverse tenancies and divert potential future waste (e.g. carefully examining existing steel windows and demonstrating only 24 of the 216 needed replacement, and surveying exterior brick by hand to remove as little as necessary). Insights into how to help developers and landlords create lease guidelines that protect diverse heritage attributes and increase long-term financial value will also be shared. Giaimo team members will provide a comprehensive project walkthrough, discuss project scope and design initiative, and share exclusive “before” pictures of the buildings to showcase the transformation.


Field Session Leaders: Mitchell May (Associate, Giaimo, Toronto) and Sara Shemirani (Architectural Designer, Giaimo, Toronto)

The oldest cathedral in Toronto, St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica followed a Master Plan for Renewal through 6 phases. The largest phase of which was Phase 4 (2010 to 2020) when most of the cathedral campus buildings were conserved. We will tour the grounds, the interior, the Crypt and Atrium with the architect, constructor, crafts persons to review the work of rehabilitating the physical value of this place. The Cathedral’s resiliency has been conserved for the next 100 years. 


The Cathedral continues to be used as it was originally intended. This session will include a presentation on the rehabilitation of the Cathedral’s associative values, and the church’s efforts in advancing decolonization and anti-racism.  As an institution it is constantly evolving, which means that it must address its values and beliefs in light of societal change.


Leaders: Terry White (Partner, +VG Architects), Carol Bragagnolo (Angelus & Associates Ltd.,Project Manager, Owner’s Representative for the Archdiocese of Toronto St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica Restoration), along with the craftspeople involved

Join architect and author Don Loucks and explore Toronto’s built heritage of row houses, semis, and cottages and the people who lived in them.


Too often, workers’ cottages are characterized today as being small, cramped, poorly built, and disposable. But in the late 1800s, to have worked and saved enough money to move into one was an incredible achievement. Moving from the crowded conditions of boarding houses, or areas such as Toronto’s Ward or Ashport’s “shanty-town,” just east of the city, to a self-contained, six-hundred-square-foot row house was the result of an unimaginably strong hope for the future, a belief in it, and a commitment to what lay ahead.


 For the workers and their families, these houses were far from modest. The architectural details of these cottages suggested status, value, and pride of place; they reminded the workers of where they had come from, with architectural roots from their homeland.  

These “modest hopes” are an undervalued heritage resource and an important but forgotten part of the Toronto narrative about the people who lived in them and built our city. 


Leader: Don Loucks is an architect, urban designer, and cultural heritage planner, with forty years of project experience. He is committed to environmental, economic, and cultural sustainability, and to preserving the

Since its establishment as a public park over 160-years ago, Allan Gardens has served many purposes in Toronto’s ever-evolving imagination: a place horticultural excellence, philanthropy, refuge and protest. Despite the park’s historical significance, Allan Gardens has struggled to retain its hold on the collective conscience of contemporary Toronto. This tour by the Friends of Allan Gardens aims to reveal some lesser-known stories of Allan Garden’s past, and will highlight the community-driven initiatives that celebrate Allan Garden’s place in the present and future of Canada’s largest and most diverse city.
