Throughout the spring, summer and fall of 2021, the Right to Housing Toronto (R2HTO) and the Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation (CERA) are running a virtual workshop series across Toronto and the GTA to address critical challenges in advancing the right to housing.
The workshops will bring together community leaders, service providers, tenants, people with lived experience of housing insecurity, policy professionals and others for solutions-focused conversations about the systemic housing barriers that communities are facing in the GTA, and how tenants can claim their right to housing.
This first workshop in the series will provide an overview of the National Housing Strategy Act, and the City of Toronto’s commitments under Toronto’s HousingTO 2020-2030 Action Plan. Through interactive breakout rooms, participants will discuss the systemic housing barriers faced by marginalized communities in the GTA, and how people can claim their right to housing under the new legislation through collective submissions to the Federal Housing Advocate and Toronto Housing Commissioner.
Facilitators will include housing advocates with human rights expertise from CERA and R2HTO.
Closed captions will be available.
