Board Update

Yes, we will be operating on “summer hours”, but, as a Board, we are always available to assist or answer any of your questions throughout the summer. Below, you will find an update from our 22 Division Community Response Unit members, which includes their contact numbers. They can also be reached by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in addition to contacting 22 Division, please also send your safety crime or other concerns via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  This is the direct communication link for residents to our neighbourhood Safety Committee.

This in no way replaces your obligation to report any crime to the police first. Emails to Markland Watch provide us with a way of keeping track of any occurrences in the neighbourhood and, if necessary, advising all our residents of immediate safety concerns via our email blasts. To ensure that you are notified of any potential safety concerns throughout the year, please email your name, address, phone numbers and email address to MWHAPresident@Marklandwoodorg

On this month's cover we have noted two important dates for our residents to make note of. The first is for our Markland Fall Social. This annual event provides residents, new and old, with an opportunity to meet and get to know their fellow neighbours. This year’s social will be chaired by Michele Maher and she need the assistance of some capable resident volunteers to ensure that we host another successful event. if you would like to assist please contact her at (416) 622-6226.

The second important date is for our Annual General Meeting (AGM). This year's AGM will be a very important one due to a number of changes within our Board and also to our bylaws that will be put forth for approval by our community members. Further details about the AGM will be provided in the October Marklander.

To date we have not been informed by the City Planning Department about any new submissions by the developer of 240 Markland Drive, even though a submission was expected in June. This does not mean that there won't be any submission this summer. In the event that we are notified about any activity, your MWHA, through its 240 Committee, will react swiftly to ensure that the community is kept abreast of any such activity.  Any information that becomes available to us will be shared via an email blast and also posted on our Markland Wood website.

We would like to send out a special thank you to all the Markland students that submitted their applications for our annual Youth Community Leadership Awards. The number of applications we received this year far exceeded our expectations and as a community we should all be very proud of them. We wish all the applicants the best of luck, not only through the award process,  but also with their respective future studies.

Lastly, we wish everyone a fun and safe summer. We’ll be in touch again in September!

Markland Wood Youth Community Leadership Award

If you are pursuing post secondary studies next autumn please consider applying for the 2015 Youth Leadership Award. These awards are generously funded by the MWHA and presented annually to:

Click on the tab marked “Who we are” and then click on “Youth Awards”. Complete all parts of the application. The deadline for applications is midnight, June 15th.

Community services performed by youth are intended to strengthen young peoples' senses of civic engagement and community, and to help them achieve their educational, developmental and social goals.

Community leaders will often attest to the necessity of engaging youth in deliberating, planning, implementing, and reflecting on their community service resulting in an enhanced learning experience.
It is with in mind that the Markland Wood Homes Association once again offers the
Youth Community Leadership Award to young residents of Markland who have
exhibited the community involvement and leadership the award was designed to
recognize.
The $1000 awards will be given to two students who are graduating from high
school. These are students from the Markland Wood community who:

  • Demonstrate outstanding and consistent outreach to their community, and;
  • Have been accepted for entrance to, and enrolled in, an accredited Canadian University or Community College in the coming year, Autumn of 2016.

Expressions of interest are to be submitted to the Blinder of the Youth Community Leadership Award Committee by the midnight, June 15th. At that time, the applicant should provide to the Award Committee duplicate copies of:

  1. A 500 word essay, written by the student, describing his/her community leadership involvement which should include: insight into personal motivation to undertake the activity; what has been accomplished; what meaningful contribution has been made to the community, and what he or she has learned from the experience.
  2. Two letters of reference from the community group(s), or individuals who have been the focus of the student’s involvement.
