Metrolinx is in the midst of a public consultation process around its 25-year plan, The Big Move, and how to pay for it. Newcomers and our diverse communities will have a special opportunity to participate in this consultation through Communities on the Move, a series of roundtable discussions organized by CultureLink Settlement Services with funding from Metrolinx and support from OCASI.
With about 100,000 people moving into the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) each year, how we move around in the region is a Big Issue. The agency responsible for planning for improved transportation systems - Metrolinx, the regional transportation authority - is planning the future of transportation in the GTHA with help from community agencies. CultureLink is collaborating with the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion, Halton Multicultural Council, Malton Neighbourhood Services, the City of Mississauga, St. Paul?s L?Amoreaux Centre, and the Welcome Centres of Richmond Hill and Ajax, all of whom are hosting sessions with staff, volunteers, clients, constituents and residents.
