Jane’s Walksis a series of free, citizen-led neighbourhood tours that help people discover unseen, under-celebrated, and unique stories about their community.

Become a Jane’s Walks Lead!
We are looking for people to share a story from their past or show a hidden talent in the arts, give a guided audio tour through their favourite neighbourhoods, or share their knowledge on the history of a personal treasure. This year we want to not only hear about the beautiful place we all call home, but learn about the people that live in it.
Now more than ever, we need to feel connected to one another and Jane’s Walks has provided you with the perfect opportunity. Together we can explore our city and share our stories through social distancing while bringing a little peace and distraction into the homes of neighbours, family and friends.
