March of Dimes Canada’s National Office has Moved to Nearby Location
Mailing address is 202-885 Don Mills Road while programs and services are now offered at 1 Duncan Mill Road
You’ve likely heard about the Ontario Line, the new subway line that Metrolinx is building. When it’s completed, it will run from the Ontario Science Centre to Exhibition Place. This will bring rapid transit to underserved communities like Thorncliffe Park — a neighbourhood that March of Dimes Canada has called home for close to 50 years — and help ease traffic congestion in Toronto.
The construction of the Ontario Line will impact operations at our previous location, 10 Overlea Boulevard. The new subway line will run in front of the building, and the maintenance facility will be located behind the property, on Banigan Drive.
To ensure that we have an accessible building where we can continue offering the programs and services our clients rely on, we had to relocate prior to construction. As always, we are committed to being accessible and responsive to our clients no matter where they live, and all decisions about our program operations are made with that in mind.
Our national office is now located at 202-885 Don Mills Road while programs and services are located at 1 Duncan Mill Road. We chose this location for programming after careful consideration; the building is located on a direct TTC bus route that connects to York Mills station, and for clients who drive, is next to the 401, and has ample, free parking. For directions when travelling via TTC, please use the TTC Trip Planner. For directions via car, we suggest Google Maps.
We are so grateful to the Thorncliffe Park community for their hospitality and support over the many years and look forward to seeing the revitalization and increased accessibility once the Ontario Line is complete.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why did March of Dimes Canada’s national office move?
