Labour Community Services is committed to achieving a just and equitable society for all.
The historic partnership between Toronto & York Region Labour Council and United Way Greater Toronto allows us to amplify the voices of many who are in need of support.
Core to our work is the delivery of a 10-week program designed to train union members to become referral agents in their workplaces. Participants receive training on social issues faced by working people and the resources available in their community.
We strongly believe in the power of social movements to bring about social change. That is why we are invested in ensuring improvements to minimum wage, the elimination of poverty, building healthy communities, advancing diversity, and equity.
The city of Toronto is composed of a diverse population, with almost 50% of residents belonging to racialized groups. We work with Filipino, Somali, Chinese, Tamil, and Ethiopian & Eritrean networks to advance social justice and employment goals.
