Toronto is growing...and every year we invest in new and upgraded buildings, transit, bridges and more. But all too often, the jobs and opportunities that come with these construction projects bypass local workers and businesses.
Taking a community benefits approach to community investment would mean access to...
- Good jobs and equitable, local economic development
- Procurement opportunities for diverse local businesses and social enterprises, which support the local economy and create new jobs
- Neighbourhood and environmental improvements like new community centres, transit, child care spaces and parks
