Access, Equity and Human Rights Community Funding Program (AEHR)
The City's motto is "Diversity is our Strength". Toronto is a growing and changing community and its diversity has been celebrated as a key factor in ranking the city as a desirable place to live, visit and do business. While Toronto is well-respected as a welcoming city for diverse groups, there is need for continuing attention to ensure equity-seeking groups are able to participate fully in the social, economic and civic life of the community.
The funding provided through the AEHR program is used by community-based organizations and residents to act on human rights, accessibility, equity, discrimination and hate crime concerns in their neighbourhoods and communities. By providing funding to community organizations, the City is able to promote access, equity and respect for human rights in more ways than it would be able to accomplish on its own.
