History

Founded in 1980, the West Toronto Junction Historical Society was incorporated as an affiliate of the Ontario Historical Society in 1981. It is registered as a Canadian Charitable Organization. The purpose of the society is to bring together those interested in the diverse historical heritage of West Toronto, to research, codify, retain, preserve, and present historical data pertaining to the region. More specifically, the aims and objectives are to: 1. discover and collect any material which may help to establish, illustrate, or define the history of the area formerly known as the City of West Toronto, as well as adjacent areas not covered by other historical organizations; 2. arrange and describe these materials according to archival principles and make them accessible to the general public on a regular basis, unless access is restricted by legal requirements, or written agreements; 3. provide adequate and appropriate conditions for the storage, protection, and preservation of archival material; 4. provide regular reference services to individuals, organizations or other groups interested in the activities and holdings of the archives; 5. provide educational and outreach programming whenever possible to increase public awareness and appreciation of West Toronto's history and development.
