With Toronto & York Region Labour Council being a founding member of United Way Greater Toronto (UWGT) in 1956, we all share a vision and drive that doesn't shy away from tackling what may seem impossible challenges. Our work together led to a formal partnership and the creation of Labour Community Services (LCS) in 1983. Together, we are the movement and we are rising for a united recovery.
Our partnership includes labour's active participation in:
- Annual workplace fundraising campaigns
- Allocations processes: funding to 280 community agencies
- The United Way Board of Trustee, Board of committees, and United Way campaign cabinet
- Labour Community Services' Labour Advocate Training (LCAT) Program and other services to local unions and their members and families
