Wheel Trans Community Feedback

From the TTC: We want to hear from you! From now until April 30th, we’re looking for community feedback on improving our Wheel-Trans Service & Family of Services. We invite all persons with disabilities who use the TTC, including Wheel-Trans, support persons, and members of community-based organizations that support or advocate for people with disabilities to participate. Your feedback plays a crucial role in shaping decisions concerning accessibility at the TTC.

Jane’s Walk

From the organizers:

Since 2007, Jane’s Walk has brought together over 40,000 neighbours in Toronto, uniting lifelong residents and newcomers alike to celebrate their communities.

This platform allows everyone to share their unique experiences, honour their cultures, exchange passions, foster connections, champion change, and envision a more inclusive city for all.


The Jane’s Walk Toronto festival runs from May 3-5, 2024.

The deadline to submit your walk is April 26.
