Labour Projects

Work with Labour

The Toronto Community Benefits Network has built a strong community-labour partnership with a support base of workforce development agencies, learning institutions, and funders. Collectively we are creating impact on how development works in the city, starting with Toronto’s Light Rail Transit Projects.


Labour Education Centre provides employement services, access to job postings and literacy and basic skills training. Our experienced staff offer a range of services aimed to help you get back into the workforce. We lead Labour Education Centre’s Literacy and Basic Skills classes and also conduct classes in workplaces and in community centres upon request.


The Toronto and York Region Labour Council is a central labour body that combines the strength of hundreds of local unions representing 205,000 working men and women and their families. Its mandate is to organize and advocate on issues that are vital to working people throughout the region.
