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!

Stop Night Flight Increases at YYZ

Report on Airport Activities:
February 5, 2016

As many will recall, through the good offices of former Councillor Peter Leon, and now closely continued by Councillor Stephen Holyday, the City of Toronto had been invited to take the Toronto community’s sleep interest more directly to our
federal government officials. Quoting the staff report to Executive Committee:
“On August 20, 2014, the Executive Committee considered item EX44.54, Toronto Pearson International Airport’s Night Flights requesting the City Manager write to Transport Canada to request that they reconsider their 2013 decision to increase Toronto Pearson International Airport’s night flight budget and revert back to the previous night flight budget established in 1997. The City Manager was requested to report back to the Executive Committee on Transport Canada’s response.

The City Manager’s Office sent a letter to Transport Canada on April 24, 2015 communicating the Executive Committee’s request and met with Transport Canada staff on July 14, 2015 to discuss the request. The City officially received a response from Transport Canada on December 16, 2015 indicating its 2013 decision regarding the number of night flights at Toronto Pearson International Airport will stand.”

In addition, we are pleased that another very active community group was formed in 2012 and has a lead part in attempting to address another airport related decision. The Toronto Aviation Noise Group (T. A. N. G.) has particular interest in the newly decreed aircraft routing approaching Toronto Pearson, routing which now brings many aircraft over central Toronto. This decision was reached with little. if any, community consultation, and T. A. N. G. solicited communication from Council to NAV Canada respecting changes through Councillor Matlow. In response, quoting from the Executive Committee report:
“This report also provides information related to the development of a stakeholder consultation protocol by NAV Canada and the Canadian Airports Council to guide outreach and engagement with the community on changes to airspace design and associated noise impacts, as well as the Toronto Noise Mitigation Initiatives launched by NAV Canada and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) aimed at working with communities across the Greater Toronto Area to reduce the noise footprint of aircraft operations at Toronto Pearson airport and reduce the impacts on the City’s neighbourhoods.”
