Made in Canada: Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Trinity Bellwoods Businesses
Date: Saturday, May 5th, 2 to 4 pm
Meet at Comrags (Dundas Street West and Palmerston Avenue)
The Trinity Bellwoods BIA, along Dundas from Grace to Bathurst Street, has a strong mix of new and established owner-operated businesses. Learn about the history, the neighbourhood’s Portuguese roots, and the influx of businesses that produce their products in-house.
We will go behind the scenes as we visit businesses to see the inner-workings of production: Comrags, a women’s clothier, Fredrick Prince, a jewellery maker, Bookhou, a collaboration studio, Hide, a leather-maker, Odile Chocolat, a chocolatier, and The Six Brewing Co., the newest microbrewery on Dundas St West.
This Walk will start at Comrags at 812 Dundas Street West. I will have a sign. The Walk will end at The Six Brewing Co. at 777 Dundas Street West.
Accessibility notes: There are some small steps to walk into a few businesses. There may be busy sidewalks.

Jane's Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs (1916-2006), a writer, urbanist and activist who championed the voices of everyday people in neighbourhood planning and city-building. It encourages people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with their neighbours.
