City Council has authorized The 519 to begin site negotiations to build a new LGBT-led sports and recreation centre for the City of Toronto.
In June 2014, Toronto will welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the country and around the world as the City hosts World Pride. While the city as a whole will experience broad tourism and visitation, a central hub for the festivities and guest exploration remains: The Church-Wellesley Village.
The City of Toronto, with the leadership of Councillor Wong-Tam, is redeveloping Cawthra Square Park in preparation for World Pride in 2014 and the Pan Am / Para Pan Am Games in 2015. The Village will feature prominently in both of these major international events.
The 519 is proud to be leading a study of the Church Wellesley Village community. The Village Study will help The Village to set a course for short- and long-term decision making. It will look at how best to prepare for and capitalize on World Pride 2014 and the Pan Am Games in 2015, and help determine what kind of neighbourhood Church-Wellesley can become in the coming decades.

On behalf of our entire staff team, thank you to everyone who makes this reality possible – without our partners, volunteers, donors, funders and staff this would just be a building, but together, we’re turning these walls into spaces where change happens.
The unique character and mandate of our Centre is evident in the programs and services we offer, and the vibrant energy surrounding our Church Street home. But, it’s also demonstrated through the unique model of community partnership The 519 has fostered over time.
