Art gallery coming to FST neighbourhood

Family Service Toronto will soon welcome one of the city's major cultural attractions and trend-setting neighbour to its new Sterling Road location.

The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art has announced plans to relocate from Queen Street West to the Tower Automotive Building at 158 Sterling Rd., just north of FST's new administrative and counselling offices.

The landmark building, granted heritage designation by the city in 2005, has been vacant and in decline since the departure of an auto-parts factory in 2006. It will be restored by developers Castlepoint Numa in association with ERA Architects.

FST releases 2014-15 Annual Report

FST's new 2014-15 Annual Report highlights the many celebrations, activities and achievements of our Centennial year in 2014. It also features information about the programs and services offered over the past fiscal year ending March 31, 2015 and accounts for all monies spent by the organization.

As required, the accounts and financial transactions are audited by an independent auditor appointed by FST's Board of Directors. The audited financial statements were received at our Annual General Meeting on June 17, 2015.

A Century of Community Service - a booklet highlighting our 100 years of work and accomplishments from 1914-2014 - is also available for download as a PDF or online reading.


Plan ahead for FST visits during Games

Family Service Toronto will maintain regular hours during the Pan Am Games from July 10 to July 26 and the Parapan Am Games from Aug. 7 to Aug. 15. 

During the Games, and especially in rush hour, the Greater Toronto Area will be busier than usual and restrictions will be in effect from June 29 to Aug. 18. Traffic measures such as temporary High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and parking restrictions may affect travel times to our locations.

Be sure to plan ahead and take steps to avoid delays and missed appointments. Clients should consult with their counsellor if appointment times need to be adjusted. Traffic plans are subject to change, so be sure to visit the Games traffic site for the latest information.
