Heritage Focus Group – 2023

The City of Toronto has partnered with the Jane Finch Community and Family Centre to facilitate community engagement for the Jane Finch Initiative. The Jane Finch Centre responded to a request for expressions of interest for a local facilitation team and will be working collaboratively with several community groups in the area to conduct engagement activities with support from City staff.

The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is a group of community members selected in part through a civic lottery to reflect local diversity. The CAC provides community oversight and accountability in the approach to engagement and in the development of the integrated plans.
