From Campaign Pledges to Action

Consumer survivors can use the Prosperity Platform to advocate for resources and actions at City Hall. We can use it to remind / support / shame  our representatives.

//www.commitmentto.com/ More information from Commitment TO CommunityDuring the municipal election, Mayor Tory and 19 Councillors committed to “…support the full funding and full implementation of Toronto’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (TO Prosperity) and other Council-approved equity initiatives over the 2019-2022 term, including:

  • 7,200 new supportive housing units, at least 8,000 new deeply affordable rental housing units, and 1,000 new shelter spaces
  • Reduced TTC fares for an additional 157,000 lower-income adults
  • 11,500 new child care spaces, including 5,000 subsidized spaces
  • 40,000 new recreation program spaces

To make sure that our representatives follow through on the Prosperity Platform Pledge they need volunteers. You can contact Israt Ahmed at iahmed@socialplanningtoronto.org and //www.commitmentto.com/ More information from Commitment TO Community: child care, housing, jobs, poverty, and transit.

Speak, write and show-up for accessibility, inclusion and consumer survivors and people who use drugs. We are talked about rather than listened to at planning tables. For example, many of us may need to access shelters, but do our ideas about making shelters more pleasant, healthy, and accessible drive the discussion or are the deciders only concerned about about money and keeping “us” away from them.
