In early 2009, Social Planning Toronto (SPT), in collaboration with the City‐Wide Agency Network and Toronto Neighbourhood Centres (TNC), conducted a survey of social service agencies and community organizations in Toronto. The purpose of this survey was two‐fold. First, to provide both TNC and the City‐Wide Agency Network with an updated collective “footprint” of their respective member agencies (i.e. geographic service areas, number of service locations throughout the city, number of individuals served, types programs and services offered, etc.) – important and useful information for conversations with funders, government, and the broader public. The second purpose was to provide current Toronto information regarding employment practices and human resource policies, particularly in the area of employee benefits, for member organizations of the two groups.
