    The Annex Residents’ Association wants to help you reduce the environmental footprint of living in this neighbourhood.

    Plateshare.ca is a new initiative in the Annex neighbourhood!

    Throwing a party?

    You might not have enough dining ware, but we do!

    Rather than buying plastic plates, cups, and forks, borrow them from us instead!

    Borrow a set of 20 forks, plates, cups, and bowls, ideal for kids parties and do your bit to keep excess plastic out of our landfill and oceans. Did you know that the vast majority of plastic isn’t recycled and ends up as waste?

    How it works:

    Select the dish set you’d like to borrow.

    1. Select a pick up date & time (The dishes will be booked for 48 hours)
    2. You will get a confirmation email confirming the pick up time and address
    3. (please check your spam if you don’t see the message)
    4. Have a fantastic waste-free party
    5. Wash and dry dish set (dishwasher preferred)
    6. Return it.


    Go to Plateshare.ca, plan your party and reduce your environmental footprint!

    Coalition of Residents' Associations Opposes U of T Proposal for Planetarium Site

    The Annex Residents' Association, as part of a coalition of residents' associations, is opposed to a University of Toronto proposal for the Planetarium site south of the ROM on Queen's Park. Their concerns and objections were raised at a first public meeting on June 12, 2019, and in a letter to City Planning and Councillor Layton. As a result a working group will be formed under the leadership of Councillor Layton and will include members of the coalition, City planners, the architect and U of T planning staff. It is expected to meet for the first time in early Fall.

    YWCA Toronto and the City of Toronto say the buildings are not ready, so they are postponing the Open House. It will be rescheduled for a later date when neighbours will be able to picture the shelter in action. 

    Please pass word of the cancellation along to any of your friends. YWCA Toronto and the City of Toronto apologize for any inconvenience caused by this last-minute change.
