TTC Track Reconstruction Will Cause Disruption at College and Spadina
This track reconstruction will take place between April 6 - 27. It is not possible to cross the street at the intersection in an accessible manner. You can approach the intersection from the East on the North side of College Street or from the North on the East side of Spadina Avenue to access Accessibility Services at 455 Spadina Ave.
In addition to not being able to cross the street at the intersection of Spadina Avenue and College street in an accessible manner note that there is excessive noise and dust at the intersection.
If you have any concerns about being able to access our location safely please contact your Disability Counsellor.
Registered students may wish to email, fax or phone their Disability Counsellor instead of having a face to face meeting.
Here is a description of the construction.

Poet in Community Workshop
The Poet in Community program offers workshops where students can explore what matters to them through writing and self-expression. But don’t be put off by the word "poet": no special experience is necessary! The workshops are open to all disciplines. Use writing to connect the intellectual, the emotional, the physical and the social.
Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.
