Towards a Poverty-Free Toronto: From Learning to Action

Bloor Street United Church, 300 Bloor Street West

Last month City Council passed a budget that reversed many proposed cuts, but still left poverty and inequality entrenched in Toronto.

Thousands of Toronto residents demanded a budget that would make our city fairer, more equitable and more liveable.

While our efforts prevented a number of service cuts, Mayor and Council’s budget did little to help the many Toronto residents struggling to access affordable housing, transit, child care and recreation programs.

What do we do next to build a better city for all? 

On April 12, Commitment 2 Community invites you to join residents from across Toronto for a fun, interactive, and engaging evening of dialogue, strategizing and priority setting.

Let’s build on our success in stopping cuts in 2017 to realize real progress in 2018 and beyond.

Please join us!

Hosted by Commitment 2 Community, a city-wide network of over 60 groups that supports resident engagement and advocacy to reduce poverty and improve access to services.

Light supper, tokens and children’s program available.

Space is limited. If you require child minding, please contact Susan Kwong no later than Tuesday, April 3 at or 416-562-8110. 

For more information, contact Susan Kwong at or 416-562-8110.
