Toronto ACORN

Toronto ACORN was founded in 2004, with the first organized group in Canada being formed in Weston / Mt Dennis after tenants took their slum-lord to task and won $250,000 in rent abatements.  In the next ten years Toronto ACORN spread to every part of the city leading the fight and winning significant victories including raising the minimum wage; strengthening of the enforcement of apartment building standards; regulating the payday loan industry in Canada; and countless improvements in our neighbourhoods.  In the next year we plan to fight for a new Residential Tenancy Act; to turn up the heat on predatory lenders that sell consolidation loans; to continue our fight to get the city of Toronto to license all landlords in the city; and to keep the pressure on to close the digital divide.

Toronto ACORN has local meetings in your neighbourhood and they are always open for new people to get involved. Join Toronto ACORN now!

Toronto ACORN's Rent Grant Victory!

Posted May 28, 2021

Thousands of tenants in Toronto are behind on rent and at risk of eviction, which is why Toronto ACORN members have been fighting for rent relief for tenants, and targeting all levels of Government.

While Trudeau and Ford have done their best to ignore the problem, we managed to push John Tory and secured a victory for tenants in need of rent relief!
