What we’re about
This group is for you if you are looking for an EXTREMELY friendly, incredibly diverse group of people to get outdoors with. We don't take our hikes too seriously, but we do hike seriously if you get my drift. You can expect a challenging hike one week, followed by a longer hike the next. I try to mix it up both in and outside the GTA.
We typically hike 3-4 hours every Sunday and explore different trails in and within 1.5 hours of Toronto. When we can, we grab a bite after the hike. While I am the organizer, I tend to get lost so our navigator Mohammed leads the way!
We also throw in a few overnight camping weekends and socials. Be forewarned. We are known for some really good parties and fun socials.
See you on Sunday!

- This is an issue for everyone!Innis Town Hall Theatre, Toronto, ON
Hi All: I am sharing a very special work event with you because I think this issue hits close to home for many of you.
You are invited to :
The Life and Death of Canadian Cities
A DEBATE on the future of AFFORDABLE Housing and Quality of Life in Canada
Housing is arguably the most important issue for Canadians today. Canada's rapid urban growth, fueled by the housing affordability crisis, is polarizing public debate and pitting the moral imperative for housing against the values we hold dear in the city - open space, sunlight, a comfortable microclimate, and a high-quality public realm. In building great cities for the future, we should not have to choose between affordable housing and a livable city.
This event will host 6 panelists, and the moderator is Alex Bozikovik - the Architecture Critic from the Globe and Mail.
It is open to the public, so bring a friend!
Registration is through event brite:
