WELCOME TO THE TD-BLUE METROPOLIS FAMILY SPACE
One of the Blue Met’s missions is to promote reading and writing in early childhood. Children who know how to read and write are more likely to stay in school. Reading and writing stimulate creativity and ensure development of social skills.
The TD-Blue Metropolis Children’s Festival now runs all year long, with events in libraries and bookstores near you, or online. Beyond the Festival, we offer a series of family-focused activities that you can join at home or on social media. Discover our series, Reading to Cure and Spreading Your Wings, which is in its fifth year and presents activities in children’s hospitals and special needs schools in the Greater Montreal area.

Books have this magical power to lighting up our child’s eyes, piquing their curiosity, and encouraging them to learn about themselves and to grow. Books allow children to forge relationships and connect with others through a shared love of reading.
At TD Bank Group, we believe in the importance of education in a child’s development, and books provides essential tools that open doors onto a future full of opportunity and success. We are dedicated to support programs that will allow young and old to live with a greater sense of confidence in their abilities and to develop to their fullest potential. We are happy to work with
partners such as TD Blue Metropolis, who offer an environment of learning, support and sharing take place for young people.
