The Close the Housing Gap campaign is bringing its message to Queen's Park tomorrow. Supporters will attend question period and meet with MPPs to urge the Ontario government to pay its fair share for social housing repairs, provide equity to Toronto in rent subsidies and enter into a funding partnership with the federal government to address the impact of expiring social housing agreements.

Campaign co-chair Councillor Ana Bailão (Ward 18 Davenport), Toronto Community Housing President and CEO Gene Jones, and Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto Executive Director Tom Clement will brief media at 1 p.m.

Date: Wednesday, March 19
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: Queen's Park Media Studio

The day of advocacy is a partnership between the City of Toronto, Toronto Community Housing, the Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto and the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada Ontario Region.
