Additional highlights you can find in this year’s report:
Creating affordable housing to give more Torontonians a place to call home
This past year, we continued to expand our housing portfolio with progress towards our goal of 3,000 affordable housing units by 2030. We opened 59 units of permanent housing for seniors age 55+ at 540 Cedarvale Ave. We also became the property manager of an additional 354 units at St. Hilda’s Towers, bringing our total number of housing units to 1,414, with more to come.
Developing diverse talent in the skilled trades sector
In response to the skilled trade worker shortages in Canada, WoodGreen has partnered with George Brown College to develop programs that help job seekers enter the trades. One program, the CNC/Precision Machining Skills Training Program, focused on recruiting women and LGBTQ2+ community members, promoting increased diversity within the sector.
Putting newcomer wellness at the heart of our service delivery
We remain committed to creating a Toronto where all are welcome. This year, we successfully piloted a newcomer well-being model, which places newcomer mental health and wellness at the centre of our service delivery model. This approach has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from newcomers accessing our services.
