Depave Paradise

In the summer of 2019, SLC “DEPAVED” 120 m2 of unwanted asphalt to make way for plans to install an outdoor Indigenous Garden.  The space will grow traditional medicine used in cultural ceremonies.

Why Depave?

Hard surfaces, such as parking lots prevent rain from soaking into the ground, increasing flood risk and polluting water in rivers and lakes. They also create heat sinks, warming up our cities. By removing unused pavement and replacing it with native plants, trees and shrubs, we are replenishing groundwater, cooling and beautifying our neighbourhoods.

PitchIN Canada and Shoreline Clean Up

For the past decade, SLC has been joining forces with thousands of other Canadians to PITCH-IN and the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up.  We clean up our campus grounds, our surrounding communities and the shorelines of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River.

E-Waste Drives  

Each year on the third Saturday of March, SLC hosts a tri-campus Community E-Waste Drive.   We collaborate with Ontario Electronic Stewardship to provide easy drop for community members to drop off their unwanted electronics, keeping hazardous chemicals out of our landfills.
