About Us

The Assembly Hall is a vibrant City of Toronto community cultural centre located on the scenic Lakeshore Grounds in South Etobicoke. 

It primarily serves as a rental facility, providing space to many of Toronto's arts, heritage and community groups and is available for both public and private use.

This beautifully restored century-old building has undergone a major renovation, which preserved its historic charm, blended with modern updates and amenities. 

The Assembly Hall reopened in June 2001 as a multi-purpose venue, offering a performance hall, community meeting rooms and gallery space.


To serve as a gathering place at the heart of the Lakeshore, where community and creativity are celebrated and nurtured.
