NEAT (Newcomers Explore and Appreciate Toronto) is a Walking group organized by volunteers of the Mentorship Programs at  CultureLink Settlement Services.

New Torontonians are curious about their city and walking is the most healthy and inexpensive way to explore new places. But where to go and how they can learn more about the culture and history while enjoying the walking? Many of the newcomers found “Toronto Doors Open” an intriguing event, but it only happens once a year. On the other hand, for Torontonians who were born here and whose families have lived here for generations, Toronto is a city full of flavour with ever-changing faces. Every little street has an interesting story and every old building has witnessed an extraordinary history. Proud Torontonians are eager to share their contagious feeling about the city. Well, here we go, why don’t we take a stroll together through parts of the beautiful city.

Please join us if you enjoy walking and meeting new people. To learn more about our program please visit our website. Read our latest Welcoming Community News letter to find out the biking and walking programs in action.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
