The SLNA is an Association of residents in the St Lawrence area of the City of Toronto and is incorporated as a non-profit Corporation; the SLNA has served the St. Lawrence neighbourhood and its 30,000 - 35,000 residents since 1982. The SLNA is an advocate for responsible development and promotes public and pedestrian safety, organises events and celebrations, and champions our neighbourhood's interests with all levels of government.

  • St. Lawrence is a mixed-income, ethnically diverse residential and commercial neighbourhood adjoining the Central Business District. It extends from Queen Street East south to the rail corridor and from Yonge Street east to Parliament Street.

  • St. Lawrence includes the ten original blocks of the Town of York. The many low-rise yellow and red brick buildings in this 19th century core lend the neighbourhood a distinctive historic character.

  • The part of St. Lawrence clustered around The Esplanade and constructed in the late 20th century contains a family-friendly, mixed income residential neighbourhood that combines low-rent and subsidized rental accommodation with co-ops, condominiums and individually owned homes.

Currently active development projects in the SLNA area

Heritage Conservation District

This page includes links to the presentations made at the two Public Consultation meetings on the HCD Study and the Final Study Report to the Toronto Preservation Board. The Report recommended that two HCDs (The St Lawrence Historic District and the St Lawrence Residential District) be created, one immediately, the other in due course.

The Study Report was accepted and the HCD Plan for the St Lawrence Historic District (generally between Front and Adelaide and Yonge to Parliament) was developed. This page includes links to the presentations made at the two Public Consultation meetings on the HCD Plan and the Final Plan. The Plan was approved by the Toronto Preservation Board and the Toronto and East York Community Council in November 2015 and will be voted on by Council early in December.
