“CHANGING TIMES CREATE CHANGING LANDSCAPES”

The ravines of Toronto have always been a key element in its development. The availability of waterpower and transport made the ravines ideal locations for the first industries in the city. In the age of the automobile, Toronto’s ravines accommodated the arterial infrastructures that

connected the city to the rapidly growing region around Lake Ontario. Today, the ravines provide the storm water capacity needed to deal with climate change and add to the quality of life of many Torontonians.
