Life in Peel, Toronto and York Region is not just tough, it’s tougher than it’s ever been.
- Last year, 60% of Ontario renters cut back on food so they could pay their rent.
- Calls to United Way-supported 211 for counselling services have gone up by a whopping 34%.
- The GTA lost more than 130,000 rental units priced under $1,500 per month in just 5 years.
United Way Greater Toronto is on the frontlines, meeting immediate need—food, shelter, mental health—and building neighbourhoods where everyone has access to opportunities.
