• We were pleased to learn that Agincourt Collegiate`s combined Christmas concert attracted over 900 people in early December, to hear the School`s award-winning choirs, bands and orchestras perform.

    Sir Alexander Mackenzie Senior School presented its Christmas concert in the ACI auditorium the following week, where a large crowd enjoyed the efforts of the bands, orchestra, choirs and dance ensembles from this neighbourhood senior school.

  • Team Canada hockey player Natalie Spooner was the special guest at an exciting community event on Saturday October 19, 2013, at Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC.

    Natalie was born in the east end and welcomed this chance to spend some time with kids and families, from our neighbourhood, who share her love of hockey.

    Everyone had a chance to meet and have their picture taken with Natalie, who was at Hogan’s from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

  • The Sheppard East Village BIA is an association of all the stores and offices on or near Sheppard Avenue East, between Midland Avenue and Markham Road.

    Sheppard East Village’s Board includes 8 local business managers and professionals – who volunteer their time and efforts on behalf of our area. The two area City Councillors are also Board members.

  • The Board of Sheppard East Village Business Improvement Area (SEV BIA) wishes to recognize a number of developments that should help improve transit in our area, over time.

    We commend the Government of Canada, for announcing that it will provide $660 million toward the cost of an extension of the Bloor-Danforth Subway, that would come up to McCowan and Sheppard.

    We commend the Government of Ontario, for continuing to support the east end with an investment of over $1.4 billion toward the cost of this subway extension.

  • Sheppard East Village is delighted to announce that its new website is now functioning - and will help to link neighbourhood residents, businesses, professional offices, facilities, schools and community organizations.

    One highlight of this site is the ability to call up information about businesses and professional offices in our neighbourhood – either by their names or their fields. SEV will continue working with its members, to try to provide the information that people in the neighbourhood want.

  • When you are next in our area, you will notice that SEV has installed appealing new banners on 112 Hydro poles. These banners highlight nine SEV members, who represent more than 500 goods and service providers in our area.

    Because of many changes in proposed area transit construction schedules since 2008, SEV has not been able to set up signs at the edges of our BIA – and it was recommended that we not even replace our banners, since they would all come down for construction. 

  • In addition to the 7 nearby schools, SEV BIA would like to assist 15 other community organizations that serve the people who live in our local area. 

    Our new SEV BIA website includes points of contact for these 22 local organizations – generally their phone number, their email address and their website.

    We hope this will help many people find information they need and will put them in direct contact with neighbourhood service organizations and schools. 

  • Every year, since 2008, SEV BIA supports 7 local schools by helping to pay for the costs of the student agendas – or daybooks – that are printed and handed out to each of their students.

    SEV BIA recently provided the 7 area schools with their 2013 cheques and were pleased to receive their thanks and best wishes.

    One letter we would like to share came from Joan Willis - Principal of C D Farquharson Public School on Brimley Road, south of Sheppard - who wrote:
