Doors Open Toronto

As you may know Doors Open Toronto is entering its 13th year.  The City of Toronto is proud to present the annual Doors Open Toronto – one weekend, once a year – when over 100 buildings of architectural, historic, cultural and social significance open their doors to the public for a city-wide celebration. The program allows visitors free access to properties that are either not usually open to the public, or would normally charge an entrance fee.

The process of completing the roster of buildings for 2012 is underway and the City welcomes any suggestions about prominent buildings in Ward 14. Attached  is the theme and criteria for your review. Themes and Criteria

Every building has a story to tell and this year’s theme is: “200 years of Building the Urban City”. We will ask all building participants to focus on “city builders”, the people and personalities that are associated with our city’s history in celebration of the bicentennial of the war of 1812. We wanted to make a strong connection to this celebration and connect it to the present day architecture of the city.
