Today, after a marathon nail-biting debate, Toronto City Hall strengthened its promise to provide services to residents without full immigration status or all their immigration documents. Read the exact motion here.
You called, wrote, met, and pressured your Councillors and they were forced to listen. The first step is complete, and we have a new mission for you.
We need you to go out and make sure that Toronto services are now actually accessible. Sign up here and we will get in touch with you on exactly how. There is a lot of work still to be done, and together we will make it happen.
City Hall instructed Chris Brillinger, Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration to put together a report on how to improve access to services without fear including training, a complaints protocol and a communications blitz by September 2013.
That means we need to spend the next six months ensuring the right recommendations get on this report and that these recommendations actually pass at City Hall after that.
