TASSC CIVIC LITERACY PROJECT
Through a partnership with Social Planning Toronto and the Toronto Civic Literacy Committee, TASSC endeavors to ensure that the Indigenous community is kept informed with regards to election issues and trends that impact its members. Under the program, TASSC also develops initiatives that provide information on traditional governance. The GTA has a dynamic group of agencies, friendship and cultural centres that are formally and informally linked through their mandates to provide information and services to the Indigenous population of the city. Being heard and affecting change through traditional forms of governance and through elections and voting are the principle goals of this project.
