Highlights 2024

In 2024, we're continuing our engagement with York University's community partners. As a large employer and economic contributor to the communities we serve, York has boundless potential to contribute to their development and success.

Here are some highlights of our activities so far this year:

Lunar New Year

York University was proud to be a Gold Sponsor of Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti's Lunar New Year celebration dinner. Bringing together business leaders and elected officials from across the region, it was a great opportunity to connect with the Markham community. It was also the Mayor's first such dinner since February, 2020, so it was great to be back.

Markham Community Skate Day

The York team was pleased to welcome the Markham community to the Civic Centre skating rink on February 24 for free hot chocolate, cookies, giveaways, and a photo booth. With a clear sky and a stiff breeze, it was perfect skating weather. We were also joined by our special guests, Markham City Councillors Amanda Collucci, Isa Lee, Ritch Lau, Reid McAlpine, Member of Parliament Paul Chiang and of course, Yeo the Lion.
