Rebalancing the Opportunity Equation – Final Report May 2019

The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is a great place to live. It is one of the most diverse regions in the world, where we are held together by a collective identity that is fueled by a shared commitment and interest in one another despite our differences. This shared commitment is built on the trust and reciprocity that exists between community members and is an important reason the GTA is such a desirable place for people to
live, raise their families, and grow their businesses.

But there are growing forces undermining that shared commitment to each other: the GTA labour market is increasingly characterized by precarious work; there is a lack of affordable places for people to live; and people continue to face systemic discrimination in the economy and everyday life.

The GTA is also the income inequality capital of Canada—and that inequality is driving many of these divisive trends. Rising income inequality makes our societies less fair by making circumstances outside of an individual’s control increasingly determine the range of opportunities a person has access to.
