Steve Shallhorn, LEC’s Executive Director was featured in Royson James’ column in the October 1st issue of the Toronto Star entitled “Vital Signs Report 2013: Youth Unemployment in Toronto High”.

“With youth unemployment in Toronto over 20 per cent, some agencies are engaged in efforts to open doors to jobs for young people”.

James’ column discusses the efforts of many agencies in the city to improve the employment prospects for young people.

In his role as chair of the Toronto Community Benefits Network, Steve is working with residents, particularly in the Mount Dennis/Weston Road area to ensure that members of the community get access to the jobs and training opportunities that will come with major public transit expansion plans in the works including projects like the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT line.

Recently, the Metrolinx Board of Directors has agreed to include Community Benefits Agreements (CBA’s) into all of their major infrastructure projects.

Such agreements are vital, to ensuring good paying jobs for young people.
