The Jane/Finch Centre is a registered charity that aims to reduce poverty through resident engagement, capacity building, and advocacy. Since 1976, we have grown to provide a wide range of supports, including early years education, youth-led programs, seniors programs, financial literacy, settlement services, mental health programs, community development, and environmental programming. Every year, we serve approximately 16,000 low-income residents from across northwest Toronto.
Green Change is a program and satellite location of the Jane/Finch Centre. Our team of equity-driven planners, designers, and educators works to ensure that people have the skills, tools, and opportunities to shape where they live. We combine urban planning, participatory design, and community development to identify local priorities and develop solutions that move us towards a more just and inclusive city. Our current project areas include park engagement, food justice, local economic development, affordable housing, and community infrastructure.
