Right to Housing Community Forum

April 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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
· Sheila Warner from Aboriginal Legal Services
· Suad Badri from Hamilton Tenants Solidarity Network
· Council Fire
· Moderated by Effie Vlachoyannoacos from Maytree

This is a free event. Everyone is welcome!
