About Us

The City of Toronto has 10 community centres that are managed, operated and maintained by volunteer Boards of Management, which are collectively referred to as the Association of Community Centres (AOCCs). These community centres are multi-purpose facilities that provide public space, programs and services to meet the recreation and social needs of local communities. The core administrative activities of the community centres are funded by the City while the program component is funded through fees, donations and grants.

Eastview operates out of a facility owned and funded by the City of Toronto. This invaluable contribution covers the cost of our building, it’s maintenance and administration which allows 100% of the funds that we raise to go directly to programming. We are only able to do what we do with considerable public and private support!

Mission Statement:

Eastview is committed to improving the quality of life of residents primarily in the area bounded by Greenwood, Broadview, Danforth and Queen Streets. To this end, Eastview mobilizes resources from a variety of public, private and community partners in order to:

  • Provide a community place that is welcoming, safe and open to all
  • Offer programs and services to children, youth, families, seniors and newcomers
  • Create opportunities for community members to build supportive networks, learn new skills, access resources, contribute expertise and develop tomorrow’s leaders.

Vision Statement:

To foster individual and community well-being, build leaders and create opportunities for our community.

Governance

Eastview is governed by a volunteer board of directors, a diverse group of community leaders and key decision makers who provide vision, strategic leadership, advocacy, accountability and stewardship. The board members are elected at the Annual General Meeting held in June.

Testimonials 

"I didn't come to Eastview as a participant, but as a young adult who was figuring out who she was. Eastview helped me come out of my shell and taught me to love and appreciate myself. It made me realize that I had a lot to offer the young kids who looked up to me. I consider myself very fortuate to have had the opportunity to work alongside Pat, Lorna, Laurette and all the youth staff. Eastview and all the people I met during my time there hold a very special place in my heart." - Bhumika Patel

"Eastview taught me about sharing and teamwork. I learned how much the community needed togetherness and how important the younger generation was to the community as a whole. Being a summer camp leader was a highlight in my life as I was surrounded by some great leaders. I'm not sure what would have happened if we didn't have Eastview to guide us kids and give us positive things to do. It was my favorite place and I will cherish it forever." - Kevin Stork
