Community Engagement

We strive to engage with communities along the Eglinton corridor to extend benefits beyond employment and business opportunities.
Annually, CTS staff volunteer 240 hours in community service along Eglinton.
Annually, we run community volunteer initiatives along the Eglinton corridor; at least one of these are located within City of Toronto Neighbourhood Improvement Areas. CTS volunteers work to:

  • Improve parklands
  • Support local community events, or
  • Promote social and economic inclusion

Examples of events that CTS has done include:

  • Community clean up at Keelesdale Park
  • Thanksgiving food drive and food sorting initiative at North York Harvest Food Bank and Dorset Park Food Bank
  • Habitat for Humanity Build in Scarborough

We are always looking for new opportunities to be involved in our community.

CTS also supports schools as part of Metrolinx’s Transit in Your Community program. CTS engages with schools along Eglinton to inform youth in the city of Toronto about careers in construction trades and management. The goal is to develop professionals for the field of construction long after the completion of the ECLRT project.

If you are an educator who is interested in participating in our Transit In Your Community Program, please contact crosstown@metrolinx.com.
