As the social component of the City's Strategic Plan, the Social Development Strategy is part of Toronto's plan for the future. It proposes a set of specific strategic directions to guide the city's course in providing social programs and services and strengthening communities.
The Social Development Strategy was approved by Toronto City Council on December 4, 2001 following a public consultation which was directed by a steering committee composed of city councillors and community representatives.
