About Our Board
In the past year our sector and human services in general have faced a challenging policy and funding environment that has created uncertainty for service providers and undermined community health and well-being. It has also been a tough year for Social Planning Toronto as we worked through a leadership transition. We thank our members and service partners for supporting us during this period.
We are full of energy and passion as we embark on the work to build bridges, to find common ground, to work in a coordinated and strategic way, and to shine a light on the healthy and vibrant city we have set our sights on. We will build from SPT’s 62 years of advancing social justice and equity.
— Jasmin Earle, Board Chair, June 2019

As we begin this journey, we say goodbye to three Board members and welcome three new ones.
