About My City: Toronto
In Toronto, with a population of 6,054,000, there is consensus that we do not want growing inequity in our city, and that a collaborative, community-driven strategy is needed to end poverty. In April 2014, Toronto City Council directed City staff to partner with communities to begin the process to develop an effective Poverty Reduction Strategy for Toronto.
