We strive to engage with communities along the Eglinton corridor to extend benefits beyond employment and business opportunities. Covid 19 has limited CTS outreach and partnerships for our community benefits program. If circumstances allow, some outreach and events will take place moving forward.
CTS runs community volunteer initiatives along the Eglinton corridor; at least one of these are located within City of Toronto Neighbourhood Improvement Areas. CTS volunteers work to:
- Improve parklands
- Support local community events, or
- Promote social and economic inclusion
Examples of events that CTS has done include:
- Supporting local businesses: Shop Local – Eglinton Way BIA 2021
- Advertising for local businesses: Eglinton Business Profiles 2020
- Creating opportunities: A Solid Foundation for Building Up 2017
We are always looking for new opportunities to be involved in our community.
CTS also supports schools as part of Metrolinx’s Transit in Your Community program. CTS engages with schools along Eglinton to inform youth in the city of Toronto about careers in construction trades and management. The goal is to develop professionals for the field of construction long after the completion of the ECLRT project.
