Membership at STEAMLabs


As of November 1st, the Institute for a Resource-Based Economy, a long-time CSI member and registered charity, who operate the Toronto Tool Library and its Danforth makerspace, will take over the makerspace at CSI Spadina. STEAMLabs will no longer be involved in the day to day operations, however, we will continue to run youth programs and educator training at the Spadina makerspace and other locations.


We are working on the membership transition plan and will host a public discussion on Oct 25th, 2018 for both STEAMLabs and Toronto Tool Library members. We have sent out a notice to all members with what the transition will entail, and please see our Q & A page for more details.
