Embedding Community Benefits Terms in Crosstown's RFP

Getting expectations set into the tendering process for delivering on community benefits presented a considerable challenge. Without this, it would be "business as usual" as the project moved toward implementation and there would be little leverage remaining to gain access to jobs, economic opportunities or locally defined improvements. TCBN was able to negotiate Community Benefits text with Metrolinx that was included in the RFP that was issued December 2013.
