Tenants across Toronto have been experiencing an evictions and inadequate housing crisis for decades.
This report by the Right to Housing Toronto (R2HTO) provides a review of City of Toronto policies, strategies, programs and services relating to evictions, and the City’s response to the issue of evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
R2HTO has identified tangible actions the City must take to align their eviction prevention policies, strategies, programs and services with its commitment to the progressive realization of the right to housing.
Our findings are drawn from our conversations with City of Toronto staff and elected officials, as well as reports from the ground by community legal workers and grassroots tenant advocacy organizations.
