March 1st, 2010 - Toronto ACORN is leading the city wide campaign to fix rental housing.
Last year the city launched a new inspection regime as a result of a multi-year campaign by Toronto ACORN, tenant groups and our allies on city council. While this program has seen some results – it’s also further exposed the extent of the problem.
Toronto tenants continue to be forced to endure bed bugs, mold, poor maintenance and other abuses, largely at the hands of a handful of large corporate landlords.
As a next step in Toronto ACORN’s campaign to see the city expand and improve the existing program we are holding a City Wide Forum to rally tenants and announce new supporters of the campaign.
WHAT: Livable Housing Forum
WHEN: Saturday, March 20th, Noon
WHERE: Main Square Community Centre (245 Main St. just south of Danforth ave.)
