A Message from Gord – November 13, 2020

The housing crisis in Toronto has many dimensions. After years of pushing I have manage to get the City to take an important step forward on a key piece of the puzzle. Next week the Planning and Housing Committee will consider a proposal to make it legal to run a licensed rooming house in all parts of the City. The proposal also seeks to update and improve the current licensing system for existing rooming houses. The proposal will go out for a community conversation.

You can read the details here: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2020.PH18.2 .

Please take a moment and send me any thoughts about how we can improve and how we manage this critical form of affordable housing.
