Toronto continues to face multiple and mounting crises in addition to the pandemic — unaffordable housing, homelessness, opioid poisoning, a climate emergency, and racial, colonial, and gender-based violence and injustice. Urgent and long-standing gaps in childcare, transit, and community services continue to exist. And added to this, the nonprofit sector is dealing with a human resources crisis, burnout, stress, and continued uncertainty about our financial futures despite rising up throughout the pandemic to meet the increased needs and demands for our services from struggling communities.
Over the last year, SPT continued to work with all of our partners and with communities across the city to call attention to these multiple and intersecting crises facing our great city, and to raise expectations of the change that is possible.
Although there is still so much more work ahead of us, we have accomplished a lot. Read about our successes in our annual report.
