Our federal government has promised to fix the affordable housing crisis with the recently announced National Housing Strategy. They announced billions of dollars of investments, which will require cost-matching by the provinces and territories. What will the Ontario government do to make sure we don’t lose these funds?
The federal government also promised to recognize that housing is a human right. But what does that mean? How can we hold our government accountable to their promise?
Join us for a discussion on what is needed to fix Ontario’s affordable housing crisis and what a rights-based approach to housing should look like.
The panel of housing advocates include:
- Leilani Farha (UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing)
- Michael Creek & Dawnmarie Harriott (Working for Change)
- Tracy Heffernan (Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario)
- Sheila Warner (Aboriginal Legal Services)
- Suad Badri (Hamilton Tenants Solidarity Network)
- Council Fire Native Cultural Centre
Moderated by Effie Vlachoyannoacos (Maytree)
