Welcome to DECA!

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. 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. You can read our full constitution right here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1teLElTu7KrI52cwhVus733ZmmEoo7oGvj8fWad5d_7o/edit 
Please join us at our Annual General Members’ Meeting on Monday, March 25 at 6pm at Hirut Restaurant for a light vegetarian buffet of scrumptious Ethiopian food and a little community organizing! Please RSVP to this form so we can let Hirut know our numbers:

One last thing — we’re expanding! Pending approval by membership, we would like to expand 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.
