Canary in The Pan Am

By Adam Cahoon and Jennifer Conroy


Saturday, May 6

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM


Language: English 

Area: Downtown

Theme: accessibility of arts and public culture space in urban planning and community. 


Eight years after the Pan Am Games were held here in Toronto and the area was used as the athletes' village, and seven years after residents started moving in, how has the Canary district lived up to its legacy? Where are their weaknesses in public space design and public art? How have things gone in the last seven years? What are some issues that have come up? How have people in the community come together to improve it?

  • Walk End Location: Water guardian sculpture less than a block away.
