COMMUNITY MEETING ON TENANT ISSUES
Sponsored by Bhutila Karpoche MPP, Parkdale–High Park

We are in the midst of an affordable housing crisis. As the cost of housing continues to rise, more and more people are being pushed out of Toronto. Families are struggling to pay rent or save up for a home. I hear this in every part of our riding. Instead of taking action, the government is implementing legislation that would allow landlords evict tenants faster and use allow private bailiffs to enforce eviction orders. Bhutila Karpoche MPP, Parkdale–High Park is hosting a Community Meeting on Tenants Issues on March 31st from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the High Park Athletic Club. I’ve invited guests to speak directly about what we can do to help advocate for action on the housing crisis.
Space is limited so please RSVP.

WHEN – March 31, 2019 at 2pm – 4pm
WHERE – High Park Athletic Club
65 High Park Ave
Toronto, ON M6P 2R7

2014/15 has seen the FMTA undertake a number of campaigns related to Above Guideline Rent Increases, rent control, landlord licensing, tenant representation and affordable housing. A Mayor’s debate was also held in October 2014.

Tenant Association Assembly
After the wrap-up of Annual General Meeting there will be a Tenant Association Assembly at 2:00 pm. The assembly will be a discussion dealing with issues that affect tenants in all of Ontario, including issues unique to FMTA’s tenant association members. FMTA members are encouraged to bring tenant issues to the discussion so that our position is strengthened when dealing with the politicians who make decisions on our behalf. The FMTA is exploring various plans of action to get the rights that tenants deserve. City Councillors have also been invited.

NOTE: All active members of the FMTA are welcome to attend the AGM, while all tenant advocates are able to attend the Tenant Association Assembly.

The FMTA (Federation of Metro Tenant’s Associations) is extending an invitation to all Tenant Association members and friends to attend their 39th Annual General Meeting.

The agenda of the meeting includes:  Board and Staff Reports, Presentation of the Audited Financial Statements, Appointment of the Auditor, Member motions, Board Elections and also a Tenant Forum. You will be brought up-to-date on what the Federation has done in 2013/14 as well as what is planned for 2014/15.

Details of the event are:

Date: Tuesday June 10th, 2014 at 6:30pm.
Location: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) – 252 Bloor St. W, Toronto, (Room 4426)
Contact: fmta@torontotenants.org  or check their website at: http://www.torontotenants.org/

With regard to the Tenant Forum, the FMTA has for many years undertaken a number of campaigns related to Above Guideline Rent Increases, rent control, landlord licensing, tenant representation and affordable housing.  In this election year tenant participation in the Tenant Forum is encouraged as tenants will have an opportunity to discuss a range of tenant issues and become more familiar with issues related to their tenancy.

This forum is of particular relevance because of the upcoming provincial and municipal election campaigns.  With additional knowledge tenants will be better equipped to engage political candidates on tenants issues as they campaign for your support at the ballot box.  Candidates for the Provincial election in Beaches/East York riding are:  Michael Prue (NDP, incumbent), Arthur Potts (Liberal),  Nicholas Johnson (Conservative), Debra Scott (Green Party)

NOTE –  After consultation with a variety of organizations including the FMTA, the City of Toronto has created a Tenant Issues Sub-Committee.  The Committee meets for the first time on June 16th, 2014.  All tenants, tenant leaders and tenant advocates should come and raise issues that they believe are important directly to Councillors. The agenda has not been published for this meeting. For more details refer to this link:
