Social Action ‘s work is focused on driving system-level change for more just and supportive communities at the local, provincial and national levels.
Poverty, marginalization and discrimination are at the root of the inequality that affects our communities. We work with diverse partners at the neighbourhood, city-wide, provincial and federal levels in coalitions and networks. We develop effective policy solutions, engage residents in leadership opportunities and provide public education to community residents, advocates, service providers and the general public.
