Welcome to DECA!


The Danforth East Community Association (DECA) is a group of neighbours that started working together in 2007 to make our community more vibrant and walkable. 

Volunteer with Us!

We are looking for people to help out at the farmers’ market – whether you have an hour here and there or would like to commit for the season, we’d love to have you join the team!

AGM Results

At our Annual General Members’ Meeting on Monday, March 25 we elected our 2024 Board. See our About Us page for the new board and the changes to our constitution.

Souvenir tote:

Our DECA totes are for sale for $10. They feature our logo drawn by local artist Tak Bui, and were made at local printshop KT8.  Pick one up at the East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market!



One last thing — we have expanded our borders to the west to Greenwood, and to the north to Cosburn. Our border to the east remains Main and to the south, the railway tracks.

More about us…

We’ve made big changes to our little pocket, starting with our East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market, giving facelifts to a number of Danforth stores and bringing the Danforth East Community Arts Fair to the community. We call ourselves a “community” association rather than a “resident” association because we feel it is important to include residents, businesses, schools, places of worship, and other organizations in the conversations we have about how to make our home on Toronto better for all of its inhabitants.
