Tenants First Project

In January 2015 Mayor John Tory appointed an independent six-person Housing Task Force to take a hard look at how Toronto Community Housing serves the people of Toronto and how it is governed. The Task Force delivered a Final Report in January 2016. Addressing the report of the Task force, City staff consulted with the public and reported back to Council through the "Tenants First: A Way Forward for Toronto Community Housing and Social Housing in Toronto" report which was approved by Council in July, 2016. The Tenants First Project Management team is continuing the work of the Task Force by making a plan for real and positive change for residents of Toronto Community Housing.

The City is seeking tenants of Toronto Community Housing to Participate on the Tenants First Advisory Panel. For more information: GET INVOLVED.

Application process is now closed.
