Holiday Greetings!

Dear Scarborough-Guildwood Residents

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful merry Christmas and a happy holiday season, and also a friendly reminder to stay safe and warm during our colder months.

The City of Toronto’s Holiday Wish List is live on the City’s website. The Holiday Wish List is a perfect way for you, your family and friends to spread a little holiday cheer and for ways to help people who are homeless and vulnerable this holiday season, you can make a donation to a community agency that serves them.

The Holiday Wish List provides details about agencies’ name, location, and about what type of donations they need. You can also volunteer with a community agency. The City of Toronto’s Holiday Wish List can be found here.

Toronto residents and visitors will be able to take advantage of many City programs and attractions this holiday season, from outdoor winter recreational activities to indoor seasonal traditions. Details can be found here.

The Toronto Zoo’s Terra Lumina: An Enchanted Night Walk into a Bright Future opened on December 13th taking visitors on a journey through a luminous vision of our planet’s future. For tickets and more information on the outdoor immersive multimedia experience here.


The CNE presents this year’s Aurora Winter Festival. Toronto’s Ontario Place will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland with beautiful skating rink, a tube park, massive light displays, a Christmas Market and more. For tickets and more information visit this website.


The City of Toronto’s Transportation Services’ winter operation plans are in full effect this winter season. Full details on the City’s Winter Operations can be found here.

You can follow the City’s Transportation Services on Twitter @TO_WinterOps and the PlowTO Map where you can track real time locations of plows, sidewalk plows and salt trucks which also identify which roads have been serviced by winter snow clearing vehicles and crews. The PlowTO Map can be found here.

To report any snow related concerns, please call 311, email, or use the 311 app available online.

I wish everyone safe, warm and happy holidays.

All my Best,

Paul W. Ainslie
