The Crosstown is one of the many projects of Metrolinx’s The Big Move. The Big Move is a 25-year, $50 billion plan that will transform regional transportation across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Region.
Is this the first time Metrolinx is embarking on this type of initiative?
The Community Benefits program builds on the achievements of the GTS Project, which has, in partnership with the City of Toronto’s Employment and Social Services Division, supported thousands of design and construction jobs, and continues to develop and support career opportunities in the communities along the Georgetown South rail corridor.
The program also builds off of the Hammer Heads program, a co-sponsored construction training class with the Central Ontario Building Trades Hammer Heads program to help link young men and women along the Georgetown South Project rail corridor with an opportunity to pursue a career in the construction industry.
