  • Follow Our Olympic Hopeful

    Since she appeared at a neighbourhood community family event at Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC in the fall, many people in our area have been following Natalie Spooner, a talented forward on the Canadian Women’s Hockey team.

    The final pre-Olympic exhibition game between Canada and the United States took place before over 17,000 people, at the Air Canada Centre, in December – and our neighbourhood was delighted to see Natalie score one of Team Canada’s two goals.  We all wish Natalie and her teammates great success at the Sochi Olympics in February.

  • New Restaurant Opening Soon

    SEV BIA was pleased to learn that Barsalino’s will be opening soon – offering quality Mediterranean cuisine at attractive prices, in the heart of our BIA.  Located between Brimley and McCowan, this restaurant has been undergoing extensive renovations and will be ready to open in the coming weeks.

  • More Community News Coming

    SEV BIA will be meeting, in the near future, with officials from the Oriental Centre, Agincourt Collegiate, the Canadian Legion and other local organizations, to discuss ways in which we can all work together,

    to help our nearby neighbourhoods.  Watch for more information about upcoming events. 

  • Our Neighbourhood Benefits

    These concerts and plays, at neighbourhood schools, provide great experience for the participating students and also help them grow as individuals, through their performing and arts experiences.

    People who live nearby have an opportunity to come out and enjoy these performances – right in our own neighbourhood. The tickets are very reasonable and help defer some event costs.

    Everyone is welcome – hope you can make it!

  • ACI - A Local ‘Centre of the Arts’

    Agincourt Collegiate has been recognized, for many years, for its outstanding arts and music programs – and for the enthusiasm and dedication of its 1,400 students, many of whom are members of its award-winning orchestras and choirs.

    ACI offers our community the opportunity to enjoy the excellence and efforts of its talented staff and students, at these events.

  • SAM Presents Some Music

    Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior Public School has also been recognized for the excellence of its instrumental and vocal music programs – ones that help its graduating students to easily ‘fit’ with high quality programs at nearby Agincourt Collegiate.

    You are invited to contact the school for more information.

  • Upcoming Community Events

    Community events will be one of the features of this new Sheppard East Village BIA  website – and neighbourhood organizations are invited to contact the Executive Director, Ernie McCullough [ ernie@sevbia.com ] with information about their events that are open to the public - they would like SEV BIA to help promote.

    We will also be providing information about upcoming events and activities being  organized by members of SEV BIA – to which everyone is welcome.

    Our goal will be to highlight upcoming events and to refer you to the organization that is sponsoring or presenting the event – to obtain all of the event information you will need. Here are a few upcoming events of which SEV BIA is aware.
