Child and Family Poverty is a growing issue in Toronto. Too many children live below the poverty line! Too many parents struggle to access essential services such as affordable, quality child care!

Released by Children’s Aid Society of Toronto, Social Planning Toronto, Family Service Toronto, Colour of Poverty-Colour of Change, and Alliance for a Poverty-Free Toronto, this is the first comprehensive report on child and family poverty in Toronto since 2008.
“New data in the report shows that Toronto is becoming an increasingly divided city. Where a child is born and raised in Toronto greatly influences their chances of success.” (Social Planning Toronto)
