We have an affordable housing and homelessness crisis in Canada and the government is doing little to fix it. The Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario (ACTO) and the Right to Housing Coalition are joining groups and individuals across Canada in a national week of action. Make affordable housing an election issue and vote housing for all!
Join us for our Right to Housing Forum to talk about the affordable housing and homelessness crisis in the context of housing as a right.
Leilani Farha, United Nations Special Rapporteur on adequate housing
Alex Neve, Secretary General, Amnesty International Canada
Christa Big Canoe, Legal Advocacy Director, Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto
Angela Robertson, Central Toronto Community Health Centres

As the October 2015 federal election approaches, send a strong message to all political parties: we want a national housing strategy now! This event is part of a national week of action, Sep 23rd-30th. For more information: https://righttohousing.wordpress.com/take-action.
