our accomplishments

With ongoing partnerships and public advocacy, a small community organization like MDCA is able to contribute to big wins for the community including: 

  • The formation of the Toronto Community Benefits Network, an agency working with many sectors to create employment and community benefits (such as a community centre) to neighbourhoods influenced by transit investments 
  • Preserving Scotiabank and Kodak Building from demolition
  • Securing new landscaping at Jane & Lambton, Ray & Victoria, and Bartonville & Jane
  • Successfully pressuring Metrolinx to:
    • replace a gas fired power plant with an energy storage system
    • install under- ballast mats to reduce vibration from passing trains, between Jane Street and the Black Creek bridge
    • preserve track-side trees and plant trees along transit developments
