Leap Into a Green Economy

Leap into a Green Economy with Good Jobs for All.

The Good Jobs for All Coalition (GJFA) is an alliance of community, labour, social justice, youth and environmental organizations in the Toronto region. It was formed in 2008 to start a focused dialogue on how to improve living and working conditions in Canada’s largest urban centre.

The Coalition’s goal is to develop strategies that affirm the values of a truly just society – healthy communities, a sustainable economy, strong public services, equity, and decent work for all.

On February 29th the Good Jobs for All Coalition will be hosting a City of Toronto Round Table Green Job Strategy Discussion. Discussants include the Canadian Federation of Students (Ontario), the author’s of a 2016 report (for the Metcalfe Foundation’s Green Prosperity series) “Building Toronto: Achieving Social Inclusion in Toronto’s Emerging Green Economy” and the Toronto-York Labour Council’s vision and action, taking on Climate Change with an aim to push for an unprecedented investment in Green Jobs.

The City of Toronto Round Table Green Job Strategy Discussion provides a space to discuss what we refer to as- just transition. “JUST TRANSITION” refers to policies that support workers in carbon-intensive industries when their jobs are being changed or eliminated. It includes voice in decision-making, retraining, income bridging and unemployment benefits, and community investment for good green jobs.”
