Description

Come learn more about Community Benefits Agreeements, and how to harness greater community control over development!

On Community Benefits: Community Benefits 101 aims to provide an in-depth look into Community Benefits Agreements as tools for leveraging equitable development without displacement. The panel brings together a group of community practitioners working on community benefits across Toronto to exchange knowledge about how to negotiate an agreement, how to hold partners accountable, and how Parkdale can begin to envision its own Community Benefits Framework.


The Panel

  • Rosemarie Powell, Toronto Community Benefit Network

  • Mariam Paul, East Scarborough Storefront

  • Alejandra Bravo, Broadbent Institute

  • Victor Willis, Parkdale Activity-Recreation Centre

Moderated by Jenn Miller, Atkinson Foundation


Background

On Community Benefits is a two-part learning series organized by the Parkdale Community Economic Development (PCED) Planning Project. The neighbourhoodwide planning initiative has been led by over 30 community-based organizations to build Decent Work, Shared Wealth, and Equitable Development in Parkdale. Through a series of community-based consultations, the Parkdale Community Planning Study identified the establishment of a Community Benefits Framework as a key direction for advancing unified community needs and demands from infrastructure investment and development.

The learning series will lead into action-oriented community-based workshops throughout the months of July and August to collectively develop demands for community benefits in Parkdale.
