Can the province ensure their intent for the archaeological preservation components to be made more substantial as part of a museum/cultural site worthy of its historical significance?

Answer from Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario: Metrolinx has established a First Parliament Working Group consisting of representatives from Metrolinx, Infrastructure Ontario, and the Ontario Heritage Trust, as well as nine different City of Toronto departments and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. In addition, the Metrolinx Ontario Line project team has started working with Indigenous communities to coordinate the involvement of Indigenous Community Field Liaisons in the archaeological assessment process.

Once archaeological work gets underway and we begin to understand what type of features and artifacts exist, partners around the First Parliament Working Group will advise the Province on appropriate interpretation and commemoration for the history and artifacts that may be uncovered at the site within the proposed Corktown Transit-Oriented Communities development. 

Infrastructure Ontario looks forward to receiving input from the Working Group on cultural heritage commemoration that could be incorporated into a future Transit-Oriented Communities (TOC) development.
