About HVRA

Residents in our area came together in the late 1960s to save the neighbourhood from the Spadina Expressway. Other organizations then formed to ensure the area would stay a good place to live. Since 2000, the Harbord Village Residents’ Association has been doing that work. Dedicated volunteers serve as Board members, and many of the 600 people on the membership list take leadership roles in HVRA events and projects. Let us know how you would like to join in!
