On July 12, we had another successful Repair Café at Skills for Change. It was wonderful to have new volunteers joining our fixer team. Samuel, one of our new fixers, who is also our youngest fixer (15 years old!), told us that he joined the Repair Café for the learning experience and for the environment. At this café, he fixed everything from a toaster to an electric oven. Samuel is terrific, a natural fixer and leader, and we’d love to have more young fixers like him joining us, they are the next generation!

Max, our bike fixer who just recently joined us was busy with fixing bikes at the station set up in front of the building. Another new fixer, Paul, came to the Repair Cafe as a visitor at the North York Central Library in June and this time returned as a fixer specialized in household appliances and computers. He enjoyed the hands-on challenge in bringing broken objects back to life. It’s great to have Max and Paul on board sharing their knowledge and skills, and their joy in helping others!

We would like to thank all the new and returning visitors for their support and feedback. Please continue to help spread the magic of the Repair Café!

As well, many thanks to our sponsors, Skills for Change, Frank’s Pizza and Noir Coffee and Tea, for their generous support!

The Repair Café is looking for new fixers of all kinds as we continue to grow. If you are interested in joining our amazing fixer team, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

The Repair Café is also looking for a Marketing and Communication Specialist. This is a volunteer position. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to promote this innovative sustainability movement in Toronto as well as work with a great team of like-minded people in building a caring and green community in our neighbourhoods. If you have the relevant expertise and would like to help grow the Repair Café, please contact us at

For the next Repair Café August 9, we will be returning to Toronto Reference Library at Bloor and Yonge. Details about this event is available on Upcoming Events page.
