SEE EXECUTIVE FOR A FULL LIST OF THE VOLUNTEERS INVOLVED IN RUNNING THE PARKDALE RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION
Andrew Emery – President (vacated)

Peter chose Parkdale to live because it is the one area in Toronto that encapsulates a “complete neighbourhood”. It is home to a diversity of cultures, income ranges and land uses. Prior to moving to Parkdale in 2012, Peter lived in other great neighbourhoods in the USA, UK and other locations in Canada. As a landscape architect he has worked in a variety of offices and been involved in projects including urban design, land planning, residential design and environmental conservation.
