Intersection of Military Trail and Ellesmere (UTSC) Crossing
A number of constituents who attend the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC) have expressed their concerns about crossing the intersection of Military Trail and Ellesmere Rd. due to traffic density and the high posted speed limit on Military Trail. I have sent these concerns to Transportation Services and they have let me know that they are reviewing the area to see if appropriate warning signs have been installed and if there is any room in funding to install zebra markings at the intersection for pedestrian crossing. If you have any questions or comments please forward them to:

Military Trail at Neilson Road and at Morningside Avenue: Underground Construction - full notice and the map
Toronto Hydro is planning to perform maintenance work on the aging underground electrical system in your community to help improve service reliability. The work includes the upgrade of electrical cables within the City of Toronto’s public property allowance in front of or adjacent to your lot.

The civil portion of this project is expected to begin by early November 2017 with an approximate completion date of late June 2018. The project area includes sections of Military Trail and Slan Avenue between Scarborough Golf Club Road (West) and Morningside Avenue (East). Throughout this project, there will be no planned outages.  Please review the full notice and the map of the project.

Military Trail Road Work Highcastle Road to Ellesmere Road
Notice to community

The work on Military Trail continues.  The geotechnical investigation (an engineering report of the pavement structure and subsurface soil conditions) is complete. 

The field investigations took longer than expected due to the location of an Enbridge Gas main that is in the vicinity of Military Trail.  Enbridge imposed various restrictions and conditions on the City and the city consultant while working within the Right-Of-Way of their gas main, which led to a revision to the work plan multiple times.

We are now awaiting the factual and recommendation reports from the geotechnical consultant to advise on the current condition of the road and what future work is required to repair any damaged.  These reports are expected shortly.  The City will determine if the road can be re-opened depending on the results of these reports.

If you have any questions on this project please contact the project manager

Scouts Canada Testimonials
"I have two children in Scouts Canada with the 1st Centenary, my daughter age 11 and son age 7. They both love it!
We as a family have enjoyed the many outings and community events that Scouts have planned or helped in some way.  We look forward to many more years with Scouts Canada."
"My four kids are in the Scouts program with 1st Centenary and we have found it very rewarding.   What is notable is the dedication to and knowledge of the program.  
My older two are in Scouts and recently came home full of pride after making catapults. I thought it was amazing." 

"I encourage all parents if they have an opportunity to check out their local area Scout troupe for their kids, it's a great opportunity for learning and forming friendships."  
"Our family has been involved in Scouting with 1st Centenary for the past 7 years.  We know that all the experiences they have gone through with Scouting have enabled our children to discover feelings confidence, skills to become leaders of tomorrow and an appreciation and connection for the outdoors."

We meet Tuesday/Wednesdays at St Edmund Campion and Highcastle PS depending on whether it is Beavers, Cub Scouts, or Scouts.  Times and age groups vary so give us a call at 416-724-9215 and explore what Scouts Canada can do for your boy or girl, ages 5 to 26!!
