The Toronto Dollar is a symbol of caring, created by community-minded citizens in the hope that it will help to build a more just and compassionate city. The work of the Toronto Dollar is to encourage more caring social and economic relationships among people from the community, business and government sectors -- and particularly among those in the community in greatest economic need.

You can help us make a difference by using Toronto Dollars. The Toronto Dollar is a local currency that benefits the community by:

strengthening the local economy and supporting new businesses
