The Toronto Railway Historical Association (TRHA) was established in 2001. It is incorporated and is a Federally registered charity.
Its primary purpose is to promote the development of the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre, which will:
Communicate the history of railways in Toronto.
Identify, celebrate and facilitate the study of the creative, technological, social and industrial achievements of Torontonians who have contributed to the development of railways in Canada.
Assemble, conserve and preserve artifacts and objects relating to the development of the railway industry.
Undertake research to construct and maintain a comprehensive record of Toronto’s railway history.
Make that record available to Canada and the world via internet technology.
The Toronto Railway Historical Association (TRHA) has developed a comprehensive vision and mission statement to position us for the future.
In February 2002, TRHA made a deputation to the City of Toronto’s Economic Development and Parks Committee in support of the staff report which recommended the establishment of a railway museum as part of the City’s agreement with O&Y Properties Inc for the restoration, development and operation of the John Street Roundhouse. Council adopted this report.
Since 2002, in consultation with Culture Division staff, TRHA has continued to develop this vision for the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre and for linking its three component sites. The existence of three sites – two of them heritage properties – in close proximity to each other in the core of downtown Toronto presents unparalleled opportunities for the development of a superb railway heritage centre.
