Event description

Description

SOLD OUT | Thank you those who confirmed attendance to #UnderPressureTO. Walk-in registration will be available on the day of the event. If tickets are available, waitlisted attendees will recieve an email with an option to attend or give up their spot in line.


Rents are at an all-time high, newcomers and young people can’t afford to live in the city, and people who need subsidized and supportive housing are being left in the cold. From affordability problems and precarious housing to homelessness across the region – housing is a big issue in the GTHA, that requires a government response.

We have new political leaders, strategies, and housing talk at all 3 levels of government – so what’s next? National Housing Week, Nov 19 – 23, is an opportunity to talk about these issues.

In a panel discussion, moderated by Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of Wellesley Institute, housing experts with a range of experiences tackle these issues head-on and share their #1 idea for what the city, province or federal government should to do right now to address the housing crisis.

Light refreshments will be served.

This event is free but registration is required. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
