Bird Migration Safety
Seasonal bird migrations in Ontario last from March through June, and continue again from the end of August to the beginning of November. It is common for flocks of birds to be attracted to lights from buildings and, sadly, millions of birds are injured or killed due to collisions with buildings (source: flap.org). While we understand that manypeople continue to work from home, please assist us where you can to help make our QuadReal office buildings flight-safe for birds.
The following are some simple and helpful techniques we're doing that you too can do for both your home – especially in high-rise towers - and office settings:
·When working late and, when localized light controls are available, please use task lighting (table or desk lamps) instead of overhead lights
·Close window curtains and blinds at night
·Turnoff non-critical exterior lighting during spring and fall bird migration seasons
·If surrounding greenery is reflected in your windows, consider a bird-deterrent window solution or move greenery away from windows
·Report a fallen bird at your home or workplace by calling Flap Canada at: 416.366.3527 or [email protected]

Myseum of Toronto: Intersections
Myseum Intersections is an annual festival that will take place during the month of April 2022. The festival explores intersectional perspectives of Toronto through collaborative exhibits, events, and experiences. Intersections presents a wide array of programming intended to create dialogue on civic issues and inspire a deeper knowledge and appreciation of our city.
Myseum’s Intersections festival fosters collaboration and partnership, bringing together community, culture, arts and heritage organizations to produce compelling programs and a space for lesser known narratives of under-represented communities.
Project proposals can range from exhibitions to events such as walking tours, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, public programs, exhibition tours, community celebrations, interactive experiences, and performances. We prioritize participatory and co-created projects, and encourage collaborative partnerships between organizations, collectives and individuals.
Coming soon to the Collision Gallery located in the South Tower at Commerce Court. Please click here to learn more about Myseum.
