St. John’s West Toronto, 288 Humberside Ave (corner of Quebec Ave.), Toronto, ON.
Join a special meeting of the West Toronto Junction Historical Society, in partnership with St. John’s West Toronto Anglican Church, to celebrate its centenary on Humberside Ave and 142 years in the Junction.
Historian Christopher Rutty will present on St. John’s story, evolution, and community impact within the Junction.
Over the past year, Christopher has led an effort to collect, document and share the history of St. John’s West Toronto, focusing on the story of its third church building over the past century, located at 288 Humberside Ave. at the corner of Quebec Ave, just west of High Park Ave.
Through the historical lens of St. John’s, one can explore the development of the Anglican Church in Toronto and St. John’s pioneering role in it, against the backdrop of the Junction's evolution.
This occasion will be more than just another meeting of the WTJHS, the last few of which have been held in an in-person-Zoom hybrid format at St. John’s. It will be an opportunity for a historical and social event for members of St. John’s, the WTJHS, and the local community to celebrate the 100th anniversary of St. John’s home on Humberside.
There will be food available along with some surprises, with admission by donation.
Further details about the event, including registration for the Zoom link, will be posted soon at,
