Nothing like kicking off the week by checking out an event or two in the city. Here’s what’s happening in Toronto today.
Created by Biko Beauttah, a refugee from Kenya, the Trans Workforce job fair is the first of its kind in the world and will be geared towards welcoming people who identify as trans and gender nonconforming.
