Toronto ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), is a membership based community union made up of low-to-moderate income people. ACORN was founded in 2004, with the first organized group in Canada being formed in Weston / Mt Dennis.
Since then, ACORN has spread to every part of the city with six organized chapters and over 60,000 members in Toronto.
ACORN believes that social and economic justice can best be achieved with a city-wide membership who are invested in their organization and focused on building community power for change.
In Toronto, 46.8% of tenant households spend more than 30% of their pretax income on shelter costs or to live in unaffordable housing.
Our platform provides a summary of the local campaigns Toronto ACORN members need mayoral candidates to commit to champion if elected on June 26, 2023.
