WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? The Gerrard India Bazaar burst onto the scene in the late 1970’s to become one of Toronto’s busiest commercial centres and North America’s largest South Asian market. For decades South Asians have come here to watch a Hindi movie, buy groceries, music, bridal wear, clothing, textiles, appliances and other goods from their homeland.

Suggested topics can include but are not limited to: people of the Bazaar; locations within the Bazaar; culture of the Bazaar and any
