Mayor’s Task Force on Toronto Community Housing – We Want to Hear from You – Tuesday, April 19 – North Kipling Community Centre – 6:00pm – 9:00pm

The Mayor’s Task Force on Toronto Community Housing has made recommendations to address ongoing social and financial pressures at the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC). A series of meetings are scheduled to provide additional information on the City’s process and to receive input from the public on the recommendations. Senator Art Eggleton, Task Force Chair, will attend the first meeting on Monday night in Scarborough.

“I am both pleased and encouraged by the commitmentPoster March 2016 of the City of Toronto to ensuring the social and economic viability of Toronto Community Housing. I want to see people have decent, affordable housing. I want them to feel safe and secure in their homes,” said Senator Eggleton. “I have heard the commitment of the City to these same goals and to working with the Task Force recommendations to make transformation happen. I look forward to attending the first in a series of community meetings hosted by the City of Toronto. These meetings are an excellent step in continuing the conversation with TCHC tenants and other community members.”
