Wellesley Institute’s mission and vision states “a healthier, more equitable GTA for all.” In the GTA’s rapidly growing population with increasing diversity and income disparity, we need solutions to ensure that everyone in the GTA has the opportunity to enjoy good health. Our health is about more than doctors, drugs and hospitals. It’s about where we work, live, play and age. It can be about our democratic processes, our education, access to child care and more. These social determinants of health are at play in the GTA. Approaching solutions with a health equity lens will ensure we do our absolute best to see that no one is left uncared for.
