In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, many governments – federal, provincial, and municipal – are committing to investing billions of dollars in infrastructure builds, upgrades, and retrofits. These investments will create thousands of jobs and put money into businesses. But we must ensure these investments also create opportunities for those hardest hit – Black, Indigenous, and racialized communities and small businesses.
The Toronto Community Benefits Network is organizing to ensure this, as the City of Toronto updates its Community Benefits Framework. You can sign their petition and join the campaign here.
