Measuring a community’s social capital

On The Way Home

About the Episode


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.
