Building Common Ground

TD is revitalizing the Dartmouth North Community Centre (DNCC) and Library in Halifax, Nova Scotia to help create a space the community can come together in for years to come. With the support of the #TDCommonGround Project, the DNCC will have a furnished outdoor library to support language and computer literacy, education and programming, a new naturalized playground, better separation between vehicles and pedestrians, improved landscaping, and 24-hour WiFi.

"TD is thrilled to continue investing in Dartmouth as part of the TD Common Ground Project, in collaboration with the Halifax Public Libraries and the Halifax Regional Municipality," said Bharat Masrani, Group President and Chief Executive Officer, TD. "The creation of an outdoor library represents a terrific opportunity to bring the people of Dartmouth and Halifax together through their love of both the outdoors and reading."

To celebrate this development, Bharat Masrani, Group President and Chief Executive Officer of TD, visited Halifax on July 11th to help preview the revitalization project and welcome guests to the enhanced space. Chief Librarian and CEO Åsa Kachan of the Halifax Public Libraries, Mayor Mike Savage of the Halifax Regional Municipality, and other special guests hosted a picnic with storytime, hands-on activities, and local talent to bring people together in the great outdoors.

The DNCC is just one of the seven flagship projects and over 150 green spaces being revitalized by the #TDCommonGround Project. Each project is designed with the goal of bringing people together, helping contribute to livable and healthy cities and improving the quality of life for communities in a lasting way.
