Working at The Storefront

The East Scarborough Storefront uses the power of collaboration to support people and build community in an inner suburban neighbourhood in East Scarborough.

The Storefront believes that it takes collective community responses to keep people engaged to address complex community-based and social issues.

Deeply rooted in the Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park community of East Scarborough, for over 20 years, The East Scarborough Storefront has been working with grassroots leaders, organizations and institutions to improve social, economic, and environmental conditions for the residents who live in East Scarborough’s inner-suburban communities.

We know that to offer a land acknowledgement, it must be personalized to the speaker. As such, it is a challenge to make a land acknowledgement in writing on behalf of an organization made up of many different people. We remain committed to adapting our land acknowledgment as we continue to learn from Indigenous knowledge keepers and Elders.

For those of us who are not Indigenous, before we and our ancestors were here and before Turtle Island was colonized by white European settlers, Indigenous peoples lived, took care of and thrived on this land that we now call East Scarborough as they do in the present day. For thousands of years, this has been the land of Indigenous peoples, originally the Mississaugas of the Credit River and later including the Huron-Wendat and Haudenasaunee peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and East Scarborough is covered by the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississauga and Chippewa bands.

Our Commitments to Equity, Anti-racism and an Inclusive Workplace

MakeWay and The Storefront are strongly committed to creating a diverse and equitable workplace reflective of the community; we welcome and encourage applications from Black and Indigenous people, and other racialized and equity-deserving groups. We are proud to be an equal-opportunity employer.

“I genuinely believe in the Storefront hiring process. It has the ability to highlight more than just skills on a resume. Being part of many group screenings, we received feedback from candidates that the process was exciting and that they enjoyed being part of a different way to apply for a job.” - East Scarborough Storefront Staff

We are committed to continuing to foster a healthy and value-based organizational culture. We provide a comprehensive extended employee health benefits package, generous number of personal days, 3 weeks of vacation to start and RRSP contributions. This is what some of our staff had to say about the organizational culture at the East Scarborough Storefront:

  • "I'm encouraged to bring my whole self to work."
  • "My supervisor and team encourage me to take breaks and utilize my Personal Days to prevent burnout.”
  • "Storefront prioritizes empathy and a people-first approach - this makes me feel like there's a safe space for honesty and openness at work."
  • “We have a diverse staff group and have persons from all walks of life”
