Marco Mendicino

Hello Eglinton-Lawrence!

I hope that you all have been enjoying the beautiful weather outside and had a wonderful Father’s Day this past Sunday. This week, I’ll be in Ottawa as the Government continues to advance its agenda to work hard for Canada’s middle class.

The Muslim community in Eglinton-Lawrence celebrated Eid al-Fitr this past Friday. During this important time of year of the Muslim calendar, Eid marks the end of the month of fasting of Ramadan. On behalf of myself and my family, I express my best wishes to you and your loved ones and hope you had a joyful Eid. Please take a look at my Facebook video message honouring this special occasion:

Canada Day is fast approaching, we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Canada Day Barbecue on Sunday, July 1st at Glen Long Park located at 35 Glen Long Avenue (close to Dufferin and Glencairn). There will be free food, live entertainment, fun, and games.

Applications for the National Housing Co-Investment Fund (NHCF) are now open! Applicants can apply through two streams of funding, the New Construction Stream or the Repair and Renewal Stream.
