Measuring a community's social capital On The Way Home

    • Society & Culture

United Way Greater Toronto released two reports on social capital. The studies assess how much residents trust their neighbours and institutions; how extensive and satisfying their social connections are; how civically engaged they are; and how they feel about their safety and services. While the results are encouraging, social capital is inequitably distributed: those with lower incomes and less financial security face greater barriers. We hear from UWGT’s Christine Hill and Isabel Cascante.
