Launch of Toronto's Vital Signs 2021 Report
It’s time for our regular check up on Toronto’s Vitals Signs.

The last few Toronto’s Vital Signs Reports and the 2020 Fallout Report have all told the story of worsening inequality in our city. On Tuesday, October 5th this year’s findings will be ready and up for discussion.

Now that we’ve experienced this global pandemic, along with a collective awakening on equity and racial injustice, how will we approach our collective problems differently? Because if nothing changes then nothing changes, and those of us who aren’t doing well are on track to get worse.

Join us for a conversation on the findings, the opportunities and obstacles to changing course, and hear about ways in which we all – caring residents, donors, funders and policymakers – can help Toronto get better.

Oct 5, 2021 08:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
