2022 Presidents' Breakfast

We invite you to join us at the annual Presidents' Breakfast!

Be inspired by leaders in the labour movement who come united to help our communities thrive and support the 2022 United Way Greater Toronto community fundraising campaign.

While some of us may feel that the worst of the pandemic is over, our communities are still experiencing its significant impact. Life in Peel, Toronto, and York was already hurtling towards extreme inequality—divided by income, race, and neighbourhood. Then COVID-19 hit, accelerating and escalating those divisions—pushing people into the edge of poverty, homelessness, and unemployment. We know that the only way we can get closer to food, jobs, homes, and the kind of region we know we can be – for truly everyone – is by working together, united.

Together, labour’s long-standing partnership with United Way Greater Toronto has worked side-by-side in tackling issues of poverty and advocating for social justice. We invite you to join us for the annual Presidents' Breakfast to ignite the partnership we have and get excited about raising essential funds for our communities. 

This year's breakfast will be held in-person. Click below to get your event ticket today.

TIME: 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM EST

LOCATION: Online and in-person at IBEW 353, 1377 Lawrence Ave E, North York, ON M3A 3P8

In 2021-22, United Way raised $100.7 million through campaign revenue activities and supported 700 community groups delivered by a network of over 300 agencies. This year, UWGT's goal is to raise $110 million. We believe that together, we can raise a minimum of $40,000 during our President's Breakfast alone! If at least 40 unions donate a minimum of $1000, we'll reach our goal! Everything counts and all donations are greatly appreciated. Below is a list of our donation levels. 

Stronger Together: $2500 +
Agents of Change: $ 2000 - 2499
Local Love: $1500 – 1999
In Solidarity: $1000 – 1499
Advocate: $500 - 999
