Invite you to join in a series of discussions on current housing policy issues

Please join us for a discussion on TCHC Reform & Tenants First 

The Tenants First report is being developed as we speak and will be before Council by this summer. The report addresses a variety of issues already identified including state of good repair, concentration of poverty, engagement of tenants and tenant support systems. What does the current knowledge base in the affordable housing sector tell us about how to address those issues effectively?
