Toronto Christmas Market

Tuesday December 17 @ 6:00pm 

All members are welcome to join in on this outing to take in the sights, sounds and flavours of the annual Toronto Christmas Market, located in the Distillery District. Admission to the event is free and the co-op will handle TTC fare for anyone that might need it. All members would need to handle is their own spending cash.

If you would like join in, please contact Ryan Hayward in the co-op office.

Organic Pick Up!

We have gotten feedback from members  that the smell of the bins can, at times, be unpleasant. To curb this, we will be implementing the following;


  • The Organic bins will be placed in the chute rooms on the 5th & 8th floors from 2:00pm on Tuesdays to 8:00am Wednesday mornings.
  • Deodorizers will be placed in the chute rooms to reduce smells that may come from the bins.


This is still a new program at the co-op and we are aware that there might be some tweaking needed to ensure it runs effectively and with as little inconvenience to members as possible. If you have concerns or suggestions, please contact Ryan Hayward in the co-op office.

DFC Recycling Program – December Pick Up Dates

  • Simply leave your recycling in a clear plastic bag or plastic shopping bag in front of your unit on specific pick up dates and times. Please do not leave recycling out on any dates / times outside of the posted schedule.
  • Please ensure that you are only placing accepted recycling items into your bags. If you aren’t sure, please visit the cities Waste Wizard page or contact Ryan Hayward for printed materials.
  • Please do not place any organic waste in your recycling bags. It’s just gross and unpleasant for volunteers to handle.
