Troubleshooting is a method for determining what caused your electrical or electronic equipment (or almost anything) to break.
This workshop will go through the logical process step by step. Bring a broken home appliance or some broken home electronic equipment to practice the troubleshooting method. If you can’t fix it then and there you will know why it isn’t working and if it can be fixed.

Parkdale Residents Association (PRA) wants your feedback.
The PRA is conducting a brief, informal survey on movement around Parkdale. We would like to hear from you to know how you move within the boundaries of our neighbourhood and how safe you feel. Depending on the responses, the survey may lead to the formation of a Working Group that will tackle issues of safety for vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists, mobility users, rollerbladers, skateboarders, e-bikes) in Parkdale.
Please share with anyone that lives or spends time in Parkdale. The survey is open until October 6th.
Take the SURVEY…we’ll publish the results shortly.
Greenest City hosts this event with Indigenous art and music; local performances and workshops in dance, poetry, storytelling; short film screening and a potluck dinner at Milky Way Garden starting 6 pm. Free.

With the reduction in size of Toronto’s city council, our ward boundaries have been redrawn. We are now in Ward 4, Parkdale-HighPark (details HERE).
It is more important than ever to learn about what is going on in your community, so please join us at the PRA’s up-coming Municipal All-Candidates’ Meeting to hear from and ask questions of the candidates running for city council in our ward. Stay tuned!
Since 2005 your neighbours have been building a better community through their work for the Parkdale Residents Association. Help carry on the tradition! There is interesting work to be done and YOU can help.
Become an active member of the PRA.
