York Quay Neighbourhood Association covers Toronto’s iconic Central Waterfront, with members in every building. YQNA is actively engaged in what shapes our neighbourhood – traffic, transit, planning, cultural and social events, policing, environment, noise, businesses, and the great urban renewal transforming Queens Quay. YQNA welcomes all residents to participate, share their ideas and enjoy our events.
CEO of Waterfront Toronto John Campbell (left) has reason to smile, as he receives the prize for The Intelligent Community of the Year in New York City. He shared the stage with Cristina Verner, director of Intelligent Communities, which awarded the prize, and IBM executive John Longbottom. The prestigious honour was based on our own neighbourhood and lands extending east to the Port Lands, getting Canada’s most advanced broadband Internet service. Every home and business will have access this super fast one-gigabyte network — for video conferences to film editing and emailing your grandmother. It will open the Waterfront to unparalleled economic opportunities and competitiveness. This is yet another international prize for Waterfront Toronto, and we will all be winners.
