The Alliance is constantly seeking to advance the interest of the community and its stakeholders. Past policy examples include procurement and home ownership opportunities during the 2015 Pan American Games; about 50 families secured condominiums at the Village built for the Pan Am Games with up to $90,000 in savings and ethnic suppliers to the Games received priority for contracts for under $50,000. Other examples include the $230,000 in scholarships for the Hispanic community at both Ryerson University ($130,000) and at the International Language Academy of Canada – ILAC ($100,000).
