Scarborough Museum is set along the walking trails of beautiful Thomson Memorial Park, once the farm fields of Scarborough’s first settlers and now a popular heritage community.

The museum shows the history and development of Scarborough from its founding and early settlement to its growth and emergence as a major suburb in the 20th century. The site and its gardens are situated on property first granted to David and Mary Thomson, who settled in Scarborough in the late 1790s.

Scarborough Museum consists of four buildings that were moved to the site between 1962 to 1974. These include: Cornell House, a clapboard, Scarborough vernacular-style farmhouse; the McCowan Log House, restored to its 1850s appearance; Kennedy Gallery, a small former farm outbuilding; and the Hough Carriage Works, which houses a collection of artisans tools donated by the Hough family who operated the original shop at Hough's Corners.

Scarborough Museum offers visitors an opportunity to connect to the past through youth programming, camps, school trips, exhibits and special events.

Tech leaders respond as the Trump administration plans to end DACA

When Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed plans to end the Obama era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, tech's top leaders spoke out. Tim Cook defended Apple's 250 Dreamer employees in a tweet and in a letter sent to Apple staff wrote, "we issue an urgent plea for our leaders in Washington to protect the Dreamers so their futures can never be put at risk in this way again."

What is a baseline state of “health,”

In 1948, the World Health Organization defined 'health' as a "state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Nearly 70 years later, we still are trying to define what is a baseline state of "health," as primary care continues to reactively address medical issues.

Canadian and US securities markets are moving to T+2 settlement

There are two important dates to remember when you trade securities - the Trade date and the Settlement date. The date your order is executed in the market is referred to as the Trade date, and the date the buyer must pay for a purchase and the seller must deliver the securities is called the Settlement date. Transactions currently settle three business days after the Trade date, which is known as T+3.

As of September 5, 2017, your trades will settle more quickly, changing to two business days after execution, as the industry adopts a shorter settlement period. This means that as a seller of a security, you will receive payment earlier, and as a buyer, you must pay for your trade earlier. This new settlement period is referred to as T+2, and will apply to both Canadian and US securities markets.
