New Resource--Ontario’s Poverty Reduction Strategy: Making Transit a Priority

Access to transit needs to be a significant component of any initiative to reduce and ultimately eliminate poverty in Toronto and Ontario.  Toronto Public Health collaborated with Social Planning Toronto to convene a number of groups with a shared interest in making sure that affordable, accessible transit is part of Ontario’s next Poverty Reduction Strategy. 

From that conversation, a background paper, “Make Affordable Transit an Issue in Ontario’s Next Poverty Reduction Strategy” was developed for use by individuals and organizations working to shape the next phase of Ontario's Poverty Reduction Strategy. This resource can be accessed from
