Event description

Description

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 from Working for Change
  • Dawnmarie Harriott from Working for Change
  • Tracy Heffernan from ACTO
  • Sheila Warner from Aboriginal Legal Services
  • Suad Badri (Hamilton tenant housing advocate)
  • Council Fire
  • Moderated by Effie Vlachoyannoacos from Maytree
