The 519 Church Street Community Centre

About the 519

The 519 is the hub of community life in Toronto's diverse Church and Wellesley Village.  For over 35 years, The 519 has been working with our neighbours and our lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer (LGBTQ) communities to build healthy, welcoming spaces to meet, participate and celebrate together.

With the support of our staff team, our communities identify and implement solutions to emerging issues through award-winning programs and services, and with the leadership of volunteers, over 80 community-led programs provide peer support, social, recreational, arts and cultural opportunities in our public meeting spaces.
