Active 18

Active18 is a citizens, residents and business-owners association of (the former) Ward 18. We have formed quickly to answer to proposed development located south of Queen St West in the Queen Street Triangle.


Active18 aims to be a voice to directly speak to our elected officials, the developers, their architects and land owners in the Triangle to define what residents want to see. Our purpose is to inform citizens of development in the Queen Street Triangle. We are not a collective singular voice but a forum for collective voices.

Progress Toronto

This is a not-for-profit organization that advocates and organizes for a more democratic, socially just, and progressive city.

Toronto Acorn

Toronto ACORN was founded in 2004, with the first organized group in Canada being formed in Weston / Mt Dennis after tenants took their slum-lord to task and won $250,000 in rent abatements.  In the next ten years Toronto ACORN spread to every part of the city leading the fight and winning significant victories including raising the minimum wage; strengthening of the enforcement of apartment building standards; regulating the payday loan industry in Canada; and countless improvements in our neighbourhoods.  In the next year we plan to fight for a new Residential Tenancy Act; to turn up the heat on predatory lenders that sell consolidation loans; to continue our fight to get the city of Toronto to license all landlords in the city; and to keep the pressure on to close the digital divide.
