Who is LEF?

LEF is a multi-service, community economic development agency that offers employment services, skills training, language training, childcare services and supports for children and families, newcomer services, and community enterprise programs.

Why partner with LEF?

This partnership allows NYWC to expand the support it currently offers, while maintaining the unique programs, identity and commitment it has to opening doors for women. Now women in North and West Toronto are more effectively connected to the services they need on their path to success.

This partnership also preserves our independent governance. The significant decision to partner with LEF was the result of a comprehensive process of stakeholder discussions, meetings with potential partners and continuous consultations with NYWC’s Board of Directors and its Exploring Integration Opportunities Task Force.
