Welcome to the Community Knowledge Centre

The Community Knowledge Centre is a searchable resource that connects you to the outstanding community organizations who are working on the solutions to the issues identified in the Toronto’s Vital Signs Report.

Through video and prose, it presents a story of positive transformation taking place in our city and provides viewers with an opportunity to get involved.

Be inspired by compelling stories. Be informed of innovative work. Be responsive to the needs.

Community Living Toronto's vision is one where everyone belongs and we help each other reach for our dreams.
