The Apple Pie Contest is open to anyone who wants to bake. There is a participation fee of $10.00 for the pie contest, which will be donated. Pies will be judged on appearance, crust, filling and overall taste. You may register BEGINNING OCTOBER 1st online, on Facebook or in person at The Pie Commission at 887 Dundas Street West.

All proceeds will be donated to the Fort York Food Bank. The Fort York Food Bank is a charity that feeds the hungry and offers counselling, training and advocacy to help people find jobs.

These images feature the owners and staff of local businesses celebrating first and last birthdays, and everything in between. Alongside the personal pictures are images of past Dominion Day celebrations, Canada Day, and Expo 67 from Library and Archives Canada.

Thirty old style, single rings were replaced with powercoated rings in the BIA colours. In addition, the City of Toronto has installed 30 new rings in the neighbourhood, almost doubling our capacity for cyclists to park in the Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood.
