The city is hiring for green landscapers

The city is hiring for its “GreenForceTO” program. Residents from York South–Weston are invited to apply.

The City of Toronto has partnered with two local Employment Social Enterprises, RAINscapeTO and Building Up , to hire and train individuals from local Neighbourhood Improvement Areas or those experiencing barriers to employment for the maintenance of bio-swales, pollinator gardens and other green spaces that are critical to increase the neighbourhoods’ climate resilience and biodiversity.

Over two dozen sites have been identified for maintenance as part of this pilot. Many are located in the Weston-Mount Dennis and Rockcliffe-Smythe neighbourhoods, which are identified as Neighbourhood Improvement Areas and subject to flooding events.

The program will make local streets more rainfall-friendly, diverting water to plantlife instead of road grates, which should reduce water pollution, flooding, and other nasty runoff.
