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

International Tenants Day is an annual event coordinated by the Swedish-based International Union of Tenants. It aims to promote tenant rights around the world while creating awareness of tenant issues.  International Tenants Day takes place on October 1st this year.

The Federation of Metro Tenants Association  (FMTA)  has organized a Tenant Summit to take place on Saturday Sept. 29, 2012 to address challenges faced by tenants.  For more information about FMTA’s Tenant Summit – On Even Ground: Fairness for Tenants in Housing you should check : www.torontotenants.org/itd2012  as well as the poster:  ITD-Poster2012.

How you can participate in International Tenants Day
The goal of International Tenants Day is to promote pride in being a tenant, garner some media and political attention to tenant issues and to unite tenants and agencies into a show of force. You can help in a variety of ways:   telling everyone you know, helping to organize some of the sessions, or even just coming to the summit. Contact fmta@torontotenants.org or call 416-646-1772 for more information!  

Several agencies are teaming up this year to turn promote International Tenants Day at the FMTA’s Tenant Summit. The FMTA will be running a series of sessions highlighting ways that tenants can plug into the issues that matter to them mostly at the Federal, Provincial, Municipal and landlord-tenant level.  Sessions include:

– Advocacy Centre for Tenants of Ontario – Legal Challenges Against the Federal Government’s Housing Policy

– ACORN Toronto –  Provincial Vacancy Decontrol Campaign

– Tenants For Social Housing – Affordable Housing in the City of Toronto

– Federation of Metro Tenants Associations – The Launch of the Fairlease Campaign to Prevent Abuse in Tenancies
