About Us

Our Mission


The East York Historical Society was formed in 1980 and incorporated in 1981 as a non-profit corporation affiliated with the Ontario Historical Society to bring together people interested in the diverse heritage of East York, to research, retain, preserve, and present historical data pertaining to the region. We are trying to increase awareness of our heritage and involve new people in our community.


We are funded by our membership fees and receive assistance from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism and Culture and are provided with meeting space by the Toronto Public Library.
