About LEF – The Learning Enrichment Foundation was formed twenty-eight years ago in what was then the City of York. Over the years LEF initiated programs and services that reflected the needs of the local community. As a reception area for recent immigrants, and as the part of the Greater Toronto Area with the highest levels of poverty indicators, there was much to be accomplished. LEF now is a leader in community economic development, particularly as it relates to human capital, and still serves the local community – http//lefca.org for more information.
