Strong Communities Coalition

There is a large and growing gap in provincial funding of health and social services between the GTA /905 and the rest of the province which requires immediate action by the Government of Ontario in terms of how it funds key provincial health and social services, according to reports released by the Strong Communities Coalition.

The Strong Communities Coalition is a new alliance of the United Ways in Peel, York, Durham and Oakville and the GTA/905 Health Care Alliance with the support of the York Region Human Services Planning Coalition and the Peel Fair Share Task Force. The Coalition’s goal is to improve local and timely access to comprehensive and quality social services and health care in the GTA/905 Regions of Durham, York, Halton and Peel.
