• When you are next in Sheppard East Village, we think you will like the winter floral displays that were recently installed throughout our BIA.

    These attractive greens are on display in 64 hanging baskets and in 30 planters – from Midland Avenue to Markham Road.

    We hope you enjoy these floral displays throughout the holiday season and until the spring of 2017.

    The Board of Management and members of Sheppard East Village BIA are pleased to arrange and finance these floral displays - that always help beautify the community we all share.

  • You will also notice our attractive new banners, featuring 9 more BIA members whose photos and profiles have also been added to this Sheppard East Village website and are included in 45,000 new 2017 brochures that have been widely distributed in nearby residential communities.  

    We thank the 9 other BIA members whose photos and profiles were featured in our 2016 promotional materials – whose stories are still available on this website.  

  • Sheppard East Village BIA congratulates the residents who have recently formed the Agincourt Village Community Association (AVCA).

    This new Association will represent those who live between Midland Avenue and Kennedy Road, from the CP Rail tracks, south of Sheppard Avenue, to Finch Avenue.

    All residents within these boundaries are invited to become members of AVCA.  The annual fee per household is $20.

  • The Scarborough Mirror and Metroland Media Toronto recently announced the recipients of their annual community service awards - to individuals they call ‘Scarborough’s Urban Heroes.’

    Dr. Malkit Brach and his colleagues at Sheppard Village Dental were given this award in the business category – because of their ‘Going the Extra Smile’ program in which they have provided two free days of dental care that assisted 130 needy patients, in the past two years.

  • For the past six months, Sheppard East Village BIA has been represented at the monthly meetings of the 42 Division Community Police Liaison Committee – one of the more active and productive CPLCs throughout Toronto.

    This participation provides Sheppard East Village with direct communications to the local Police, under the leadership of Superintendant Kim Yeandle and Inspector David Vickers, whenever an issue arises in our area.  It also provides the Police with a means of sharing important information with our 525+ BIA members.

  • Those who have been in the west end of Sheppard East Village BIA recently will have noticed an impressive new visual addition – a mural on the wall beside the CP Rail overpass just east of Glen Watford Drive, on the south side of Sheppard Avenue.

    The mural is the creation of a talented young Toronto artist named Elicser, who is associated with a non-profit organization called ‘Surface Art’, that successfully arranged for funding for this mural from the City’s StreetARToronto program.

  • On June 7 and 8, the Canadian Tire at 4630 Sheppard Avenue East, at McCowan Road, hosted a barbeque and fund-raiser that marked the 10th anniversary of Jumpstart – a community program that helps kids participate in sports, dance or other physical activities.

    Ed Lukezic and his colleagues thank all of their customers who helped support this worthy cause.

  • On May 3, Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC hosted  ‘Drive for a Cause’  - a successful event in support of the Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association.

    In a unique approach, people could take a ‘no-obligation’ test drive of a Hogan car, in return for a $50 contribution to the Sharks.  Some 181 people took a test drive that day and others kicked in for some delicious foods barbequed at Hogan’s.  This event generated a total contribution to the Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association of $9,621!
