Implementing the Community Benefits Framework

The Community Benefits Program in discussion with Metrolinx for implementation on the Crosstown LRT includes a set of specific employment-related asks from TCBN. For the Construction trades jobs and apprenticeship training, this is 15% of all job hours on the project be linked to the TCBN’s targets of employment equity groups and historically disadvantaged neighbourhoods. This is supported by TCBN’s database of residents outlined in TCBN’s Letter to Partners, which was identified in the initial round of outreach done through the provincially funded Labour Market Partnership Project.
