At OnePeopleTO, we are committed to enhancing the lives of members in the Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities as well as honouring & understanding the intersection of cultures.
The mission of OnePeopleTO (OPTO) is to provide opportunities to establish personal leadership & legacy in the Black community by fostering an anti-racist, queer positive and anti-oppressive wellness, business & event hub.
The name OnePeopleTO is a play on the Jamaican motto "Out of Many, One People" meaning that whether representative of the Black community or the Human Race, we are all made of many cultures, creeds & beliefs. No one person is one thing, we are multi-faceted just like our personal chemistry.
OnePeopleTO recognizes that connection to faith and spirituality is the cornerstone of external success so OPTO invites and celebrates Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour healing practitioners so representation and compensation for their talents and knowledge is systematized and normalized. Spiritual & emotional wellness services like transformational life coaching, reiki, yoga, moon circles and more. We also offer space for rent to local BIPOC artisans and entrepreneurs for opportunities to display art, share services and host intimate events.
We believe REST, FUN & PLAY is RESISTANCE so we promote joy every chance we get with every soul. We also know healing is paramount to alignment and abundance, so we dedicate our ongoing to understanding anti-Black racism by investing in an anti-oppressive and trauma-informed framework. In doing so, we respect all backgrounds, sexual orientations, spiritual beliefs. We seek to align with local entrepreneurs and artisans with the same goal.
We are committed to partnering with other organizations or practitioners to benefit communities of interest. If you would like to suggest an organization for OnePeopleTO to partner with, please reach out.

With COVID-19 being a very present reality in 2020, we have taken precautions to transfer most offerings online. We have also decided to limit the number of individuals in OnePeopleTO at a given time as well as in general. The space is available for event rentals however we reserve the right to refuse based on event type and mutual needs. The OnePeopleTO space is cleaned and sanitized before and after each in-person event and we require each participant to sanitize their hands upon entry, allow a no-touch temperature check, then proceed to wash hands before engaging with community members. Disposable masks are available if needed.
