The City of Toronto and Toronto Community Housing are working hard to put people first by fixing social housing. And the work is paying off.
City Council has approved an unprecedented investment of $864 million over 10 years. That's equal to one-third of the $2.6 billion in additional capital repairs Toronto Community Housing faces in the next decade.
