1967, Piazza Dante was funded and constructed by the provincial and
municipal governments together with the Italian Canadian Business
and Professional Men’s Association led by Mr.
Italo Tiezzi. It was one of the projects dedicated to celebrate
Canada’s 100th birthday.
May 2000, the ICCC never officially signed any agreement to adopt
the piazza. As part of the new arrangement, the partners have agreed
to adopt the piazza for a minimum period of two years.
Adopt a Park Program would include planting flowers, painting park
furniture, and inspecting the park to make sure equipment is safe
and there is no vandalism.
