2022 Presidents' Breakfast

While some of us may feel that the worst of the pandemic is over, our communities are still feeling 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 virtual annual Presidents' Breakfast to ignite the partnership we have and get excited about raising essential funds for our communities. 


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. All donations are greatly appreciated.
