Thanks to the work of Metrolinx, Infrastructure Ontario, the Toronto Community Benefits Network, the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities, and a whole range of others, working together, these partners have ensured that the Crosstown Build will mean good jobs for people from disadvantaged communities along the line.
They signed Ontario’s first Community Benefits Agreement… Training, Apprenticeships, and employment opportunities are now a legally binding aspect of the Crosstown. It’s a great thing! To me it represents a turning point in how we invest public money. (UNIFOR Good Jobs Summit, October 4, 2014)
