Economic Development Committee - a Doors Open Toronto preview
A presentation and media tour for one of Toronto's most popular annual events, Doors Open Toronto, will take place at City Hall during and after the Economic Development Committee meeting on May 22.

The media tour will include an exhibition in the City Hall rotunda, highlighted by a large-scale model of the Bloor Viaduct. The tour will also include a photo opportunity on the East Tower Observation Deck, which is open to the public just once a year during Doors Open Toronto.

Date: Tuesday, May 22
Time: 11:30 a.m.
Location: Committee Room 1, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the City's Economic Development Committee, will be available for interviews.

On May 26 and 27, Doors Open Toronto will highlight 200 years of building our city. Many of the more than 135 locations this year were selected for the stories they tell about Toronto's history and personalities, and for the featured sites' continuing importance to neighbourhoods and communities across the city.

Produced by the City of Toronto, Doors Open Toronto has attracted more than two million visitors since its inception in 2000. It was the first event of its kind in North America and has grown into Canada's largest Doors Open event and one of the largest Doors Open events in the world. For more information, visit
