Ontario has taken a major step in the right direction with the passage of Bill 6: Infrastructure for Jobs and Prosperity Act. A large coalition of community partners has been advocating for community benefits to be included in this bill. That’s because Community Benefit Agreements (CBAs) support communities by creating jobs and training opportunities and supporting social enterprise activity and other community amenities. CBAs offer an opportunity to engage marginalized populations, including youth and newcomers, in a range of quality job opportunities as part of a large infrastructure investment.
This achievement is the result of cross-sectoral collaboration of many community agencies, nonprofits, labour groups and social enterprise leaders working together.
We’re inviting nonprofits across Ontario to join a one hour webinar with Alejandra Bravo, Director of Leadership and Training at the Broadbent Institute to discuss how community benefit agreements work, how they can help nonprofits, and why the coalition felt it was important to have community benefits mentioned in Bill 6.
