War Footing: Toronto and the Second World War

Sunday, September 8, 11 am

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of mobilization, this walking tour will explore some of Toronto’s most popular new neighbourhoods and explain how these areas served a very different purpose during the Second World War. Where many Torontonians now live was once the very heart of Toronto’s war industry, whose vast output supported Canada’s oversized involvement in the conflict.

FREE, with complimentary admission to Fort York after the tour.
