The Toronto Social Capital Study 2022 is the most in-depth look at social capital in the city. Released by Toronto Foundation and the Environics Institute, along with 15 partners, the report covers Torontonians’ wellbeing based on their social networks, social trust, civic engagement and neighbourhood support.
