Company Description

The Living City® Foundation supports the work of Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) and raises money for projects undertaken by TRCA. TRCA helps people understand, enjoy and look after the natural environment. Our vision is for The Living City - a cleaner, greener and healthier place to live for you today and for your children tomorrow. The foundation was established in 1961 and since that time, it has raised over $37 million for the building of The Living City. Our vision is for a new kind of community, The Living City, where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature's beauty and diversity. Since 1957 TRCA has monitored, protected and regenerated the nine watersheds which flow through the Toronto region into Lake Ontario. Toronto and Region Conservation's partners are the City of Toronto, the regional municipalities of Durham, Peel and York, the Town of Mono and the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio. It serves a population of 4.3 million. Toronto and Region Conservation is the largest owner of green space in the Toronto region with over 40,000 acres. It owns and operates Black Creek Pioneer Village, the Kortright Centre for Conservation, Tommy Thompson Park, three outdoor education field centres and ten parks and conservation areas. It also owns other "green gems" like Humber Bay Park, Bluffers Park, the Ajax Waterfront Park and the Don Valley Brick Works. These places, and many others, are maintained by our municipal partners. The Living City is a broad vision that can only be achieved with the help of our partners and the community as we aim to build a foundation of healthy rivers and shorelines, regional biodiversity, sustainable communities and business excellence. These project and facilities would not exist without the support and financial commitments of donors like you. Please donate and support our dinner to continue our dream of making the Toronto Region the most livable city in the world.
