Morphology 2021, presented by Lakeview Community Partners, an evolving photography exhibit, documenting construction of the Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area, a 64-acre waterfront green space. The virtual exhibit is an opportunity to view the emerging new landscape on the Lake Ontario shoreline. Virtual tour courtesy of Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives (PAMA).
Through the lens of photographers and filmed content, you’ll be able to see the evolution of Canada’s largest construction project of its kind. You can explore your relationship and connection with water, landscapes and our shared responsibility to the Great Lakes.
Morphology was the inspiration of former Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey and was first launched on January 14, 2018, the day before the Councillor’s untimely passing. Morphology was born from a vision championed by Jim and Lee Tovey, along with community members, during early construction of the conservation area.
The new conservation area lies adjacent to Mississauga’s Lakeview Village development, Canada’s next generation waterfront community that will connect business, education, culture, residences and recreation along the waterfront.
The exhibit was generously funded by Lakeview Community Partners, Edenshaw Developments and Mother Parkers Tea and Coffee. The exhibit was organized by Credit Valley Conservation Foundation, Credit Valley Conservation, the Region of Peel, Toronto and Region Conservation, the City of Mississauga, Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives, and Greatness – The Great Lakes Project, with production support from Metalworks and RM Pictures.
The Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area will open to the public in 2025. Learn more about the project’s history, environmental assessment, engineering and design planning, habitat and restoration work and much more by watching the video series here.
