WHAT IS IT?

A campaign to get candidates in the October 22, 2018 Toronto election to commit to implement Toronto’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (TO Prosperity)

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Toronto has the highest level of poverty and inequality among Canadian cities. Hundreds of thousands of individuals and families can’t access good jobs, adequate incomes, or affordable housing, transit and child care. More and more people are finding it harder to make ends meet.

WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL IT MAKE?

If candidates commit to – and follow through on – implementing TO Prosperity over the next Council term, hundreds of thousands of children, youth and adults will have better access to good jobs, decent housing, and more affordable transit, child care, and recreation programs.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
