Ontario ACORN Death of Affordable Housing Action – Join the day of mourning

Mock funerals are being organized at buildings impacted by AGls, renovictions and demovictions in Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, London, Kitchener-Waterloo and Peel Region. 

Join us in the day of mourning for the significant loss of affordable housing across the province. 

ACORN is demanding the Ontario government to enact FULL Rent Control which means:
- All buildings - not just those built before November 2018
- Vacancy Control so rent increases are capped after a tenant moves out
- A ban on AGI (above guideline rent increases)
