Labour & United Way

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 1982. 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 300+ 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

Visit the United Way Greater Toronto website to learn more about their work: www.unitedwaygt.org.
