The Corner

A Community and Service Hub for Residents.

Who we are

In May 2011, the St. James Town Community Corner at 200 Wellesley opened its doors. The Corner is a fully accessible set of offices, meeting spaces, program rooms and community kitchen dedicated to local initiatives and services to benefit the neighbourhood. This collaboration between residents, public and private funders and service providers is a unique St. James Town community success story.

Operating out of the Toronto Community Housing (TCHC) building, at 200 Wellesley St. E., the facility was formed by a local steering committee after consulting with the community, and it is the result of more than five years of effort by local resident volunteers in partnership with a number of service providers. All are committed to improve access for St. James Town residents to services, supports and opportunities to meet, plan and build a strong, healthy neighbourhood.

Racism is a public health crisis

St. James Town Community Corner (The Corner) and the St. James Town Service Providers’ Network (SJTSPN) stand in solidarity with the black communities and their leaders and are committed to critical engagement for the advancement of equitable public health at frontline, community and systemic levels.
