We are 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. 

Join us at our public board meeting

DECA’s next public board meeting  is on Wednesday, May 29 at 7pm. We will be gathering at Ampersand Bakehouse, 1808 Danforth (and enjoying some of the cookies that will be featured at this year’s market!). Join us to learn more about what role DECA plays in the community or tell us what you would like to see happen in our ongoing efforts to make this a vibrant and connected neighbourhood.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Here comes the 10th Annual #DanforthEast Yard Sale!

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.  Watch for them at this year’s 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.
