Ethennonnhawahstihnen’ Park Naming Consultation

  • Mountain Equipment Co-op 784 Sheppard Avenue East North York, ON, M2K 1C3 Canada (map)

In an effort to fulfill Toronto's commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, we are proposing a new name for a new park in Don Valley North: Ethennonnhawahstihnen’ [et-hen-nonn-ha-wah-stih-nen’], which means "where they had a good, beautiful life." The name was suggested by the Wendat community to honour the Wendat Nation, who first inhabited the area.

We are hosting a public meeting with the City of Toronto’s Park, Forestry and Recreation and Indigenous Affairs Office at Thursday, September 12th at 6:30 PM at MEC North York (784 Sheppard Ave E). Join us and learn more about the story behind the name and the City’s efforts in Indigenous place-making.
