|Get Involved: York Region Equity Council|
CASSA has partnered with Social Services Network and the Social Planning Council of York Region to build a voice around equity in York Region. CASSA is now spearheading the formation of an Equity Council in York Region.
The long-term goal of the Equity Council is to bring the barriers faced by newcomers, immigrants, people of colour and other equity seeking groups to the attention of York Region Municipalities and School Boards to ensure the accessibility of municipal resources, programs and rights for all community residents.
Join the Equity Council of York Region, a resident-led initiative to improve our diverse community’s access to area schools, services and governance.
Individuals and agencies can get involved by joining the general membership or by running for one of the Executive Committee positions. Want to learn more about the council’s development, goals and structure? Want to find out how you can participate?
