About Us

...we all need TLC


Our lakefront is important to us, and Toronto Lakefront Community helps keep it clean and safe for walking, picnicking, swimming, paddling, canoeing, kayaking and all passive water use.


Founded in 2020 by residents of Beaches East York and Scarborough Southwest, we pledge to be citizen stewards, to raise awareness of issues, and to actively resolve the issues to the best of our ability with the help and support of our neighbours, local businesses, and all levels of government. 

The Central East Chapter of TLC focuses on the lakefront from Woodbine Beach to Bluffer's Park. TLC welcomes  energetic leaders to start new TLC Chapters across the city. Contact us to learn more.
