Archeological Resources - Corktown Station

← Return to Early Works: Corktown Station

Key Findings

  • Much of the Corktown Station early works project footprint contains moderate to high deeply buried archaeological potential, where Indigenous artifacts and/or material related to the early development and expansion of the City of Toronto may remain.
  • The First Parliament Site and the Lime Kiln Site are located within the study area. These sites require additional archaeological studies in advance of any ground disturbance activities.
  • Where archaeological potential is present and disturbance is anticipated, further archaeological assessment(s) will be completed. The assessments may include deeply buried investigative techniques, such as mechanical topsoil removal and mechanical trenching.

Potential Effects & Mitigation Measures

Potential Effects:

  • Potential for disturbance of registered archaeological sites (i.e., First Parliament Site, Lime Kiln Site) and/or archaeological resources not previously identified due to early works activities.
  • Potential for recovery of unexpected archaeological resources (e.g., Indigenous artifacts) during early works.

Mitigation Measures:

  • Complete additional archaeological assessments where required as early as possible and in advance of any ground disturbance.
  • If archaeological materials are encountered (or suspected) during early works activities, all work will stop. The site will be protected from impact and additional assessment will be undertaken.
  • The Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and other Indigenous Nations will be invited to participate in archaeological fieldwork.
