East York 1924-1997
Toronto's Garden of Eden
The East York Foundation was originally created in April of 1965 by an Act of
the Provincial Legislature. Prior to this, municipal administrators and politicians
had worked together to establish a not for profit body to assist in preserving and
protecting the cultural assets of East York. This initiative was spearheaded by
Reeve True Davidson.
The mission of the East York Foundation is; “To contribute to the historical, cultural
and recreational enrichment of the people of East York, which encompasses the
communities of East York and Leaside”. The East York Foundation is dedicated to
the promotion of community institutions, associations and organizations. To help
do this, the Foundation assists these groups in fundraising campaigns for both
capital and non capital projects. As an Ontario Registered Charity, income tax
receipts can be issued by the East York Foundation to qualified donors.
The East York Foundation is operated by an elected, volunteer Board of Directors.
After more than 50 years, the East York Foundation continues to liaise and work
co-operatively with local residents, businesses, institutions and organizations. To
find out more about the East York Foundation, and to make donations to it, please

mail to 850 Coxwell Avenue, East York, Ontario M4C 5R1.
The East York Foundation is proud to support the publishing of Alan Redway’s East
York 1924-1997: Toronto’s Garden of Eden. This is yet another tangible example
of how the East York Foundation meets its mandate and community responsibility,
and continues to play a part in the history of East York.
Born in Toronto and raised in the former Borough of East York, Alan Redway has a degree in Commerce and Finance from the University of Toronto and a law degree from Osgoode Hall. Mr. Redway served for ten years on the council of the Borough of East York, six of those years as the mayor of East York and a member of Metropolitan Toronto Council and Executive Committee. Later he was elected to the Parliament of Canada where he served for almost ten years as a Progressive Conservative member of the House of Commons and as Minister of State (Housing). He has written for Leaside Life and the East York Chronicle. In 2014 he published his first book, Governing Toronto: Bringing back the city that worked.
