April 30: Right to Housing Community Forum

Posted
April 5, 2018

Information from Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario (ACTO): Our federal government has promised to fix the affordable housing crisis with the recently announced National Housing Strategy. They announced billions of dollars of investments, which will require cost-matching by the provinces and territories. What will the Ontario government do to make sure we don't lose these funds?

The federal government also promised to recognize that housing is a human right. But what does that mean? How can we hold our government accountable to their promise?

Join us for a discussion on what is needed to fix Ontario's affordable housing crisis and what a rights-based approach to housing should look like. 

The panel of housing advocates include:

  • Leilani Farha (UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing)
  • Michael Creek from Working for Change
  • Dawnmarie Harriott from Working for Change
  • Sheila Warner from Aboriginal Legal Services
  • Suad Badri from Hamilton Tenants Solidarity Network
  • Council Fire
  • Moderated by Effie Vlachoyannoacos from Maytree
