NOTE

The recent news of police violence and racial prejudice has been traumatic and heartbreaking. As an organization, we believe in social justice. These events have shown that it is simply not good enough to speak about anti-racism and inclusion in general terms. NIP remains committed to actively addressing concerns of racism experienced by us all: staff, volunteers, and clients. Racism has no place in our society. We will continue to expand our efforts in promoting inclusiveness, belonging, and diversity. We will not ignore the systemic racism and social injustice impacted upon people of color. It is a pivotal moment in our society in making lasting changes. Let’s continue to support each other in taking active steps to make things better.

OUR HISTORY

In 1969, a group of community residents founded Neighbourhood Information Post because they wanted to ensure that low-income individuals and households had access to information and resources so that they could be empowered to improve
the quality of their own lives.

Five decades later, from helping local community members and newcomers access resources, supporting the development of community leaders and volunteers, to providing financial assistance and housing support to people throughout the
City of Toronto, NIP remains a vital agency in the eastern downtown core in Toronto.
