Scarborough Civic Centre – 50th Anniversary Celebration
A Celebration of Community, an Ode to Revolutionary Design
Ahead of its time and a wonder even today, the Scarborough Civic Centre is one of the most recognizable structures in Toronto. Opened on June 29, 1973, by Queen Elizabeth II, Scarborough Civic Centre is considered an architectural marvel, designed by renowned Canadian architect, the late Raymond Moriyama, who sadly passed away on September 1, 2023, at the age of 93.
The City of Toronto is set to celebrate 50 years of excellence set by the Scarborough Civic Centre, not only for its design, but also for its significance as the “the first totally planned town centre in North America,” built under the visionary leadership of Albert Campbell and carried forward by those that came after him. A place for all to enjoy and belong, Scarborough Civic Centre welcomes everyone in the community to attend this special event.
When Sunday, October 1, 2023, 1 to 4 p.m. (Official remarks at 1:30 p.m.)
