Limitless possibilities for local solutions

Many neighbourhoods in our region are being redesigned or redeveloped. And while this can be good news, we need to ensure that redevelopment does not turn into displacement. United Way is working with community leaders locally to create economic opportunities and ensure that, as the cost of living in redeveloped neighbourhoods goes up, no resident is left behind.

United Way’s Inclusive Local Economic Opportunity (ILEO) initiative is re-imagining local solutions to inclusive workforce development.

Say ‘yes’ to an equitable recovery

When this crisis is behind us, we will face an extraordinary challenge: How do we build back better in the face of increased inequality and deepening poverty across the GTA? We need you now, more than ever, to help us redefine the boundaries of our recovery and build a more inclusive ‘new normal.’ With your support, we can meet everyone’s fundamental needs, build a fairer and equitable future, and dismantle discrimination in our communities to address the root causes of poverty.
