Event: YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard)

PGI is excited to be participating in YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard) Toronto this weekend! YIMBY is a full-day festival that brings together organizations that aim to drive grassroots, locally-driven community development in Toronto.

As opposed to NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) sentiments, YIMBY instead creates a space for these organizations to share ideas and communicate with city policy makers for positive change – not be pitted against them.

YIMBY is open to the public and admission is free! It will be taking place at Ryerson’s Ted Rogers School of Management building at 55 Dundas St. W. this Saturday October 31st from 11am to 3pm. PGI will have a table set up at the event, along with several other like-minded groups and activities to join in on. We invite you to come browse some of the exciting initiatives in your city! Whether you’re looking to get involved, looking to collaborate, or just curious, it’s sure to be a great event.
