Walking Tours

Public walks have drawn people to learn about their city, neighbourhoods and neighbours.


Jane has hosted many public walks associated with festivals and neighbourhood events, drawing people in to learn about their city and neighbours. These walks have also been done on request for small groups including students, municipal staff, journalists, embassy staff and Toronto conference visitors.
