Motion at Community Development and Recreation Committee

As Housing Advocate for the City of Toronto, I am spearheading several initiatives to provide safe, appropriate and affordable housing to the people of Toronto. One recent initiative is our choice-based model for housing selection. Its aim is to empower residents with a full picture of the housing options available.

With this goal in mind I put forward a motion to Community Development and Recreation Committee to develop an online housing help portal which would function as a coordinated access point for social and affordable housing options and housing help resources that can be accessed online. This motion was subsequently approved at Council. I look forward to launching this system in the fourth quarter 2015.
