As a follow-up to the August 2014 Peoples Social Forum, the PSF Steering Committee organized a mini-social forum in Toronto on July 11, 2015, followed by a General Assembly on July 12. The Toronto PSF Organizing committee hosted the events. PSF organizers from around the country were invited to discuss feedback from the last Forum and make decisions about the future of the PSF. This was an opportunity for organizers from around the country to get together and strategize about issues and strategies of national relevance like the environment, electoral strategy etc.
The General Assembly and public event coincided with the Pan American Economic Forum (organized by the same people as the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland), taking place in Toronto July 8-10. Given that the World Social Forum started as a counter-summit to the World Economic Forum, this was an ideal time to host a one-day "counter-summit" based on Social Forum organizing principles. Funds for the General Assembly and the Public event were already accounted for in the Peoples Social Forum budget for 2015. The SJF continues to sit on the PSF Steering Committee.
