FMTA "State of the Unit" Report Released

State of the Unit cover

The report focuses on recent issues that have been particularly
significant for tenants across Toronto including repairs, affordability,
bed bugs, hoarding and discrimination. It reviews a number of reports
on poverty in Toronto, and how socio-economic factors like affordability
and gentrification shape neighbourhoods in the city, access to
services, and tenant wellbeing. It also addresses recent political
issues affecting tenants over the past year at the federal, provincial
and municipal levels, including those issues that are shaping the
upcoming provincial election in October. Finally, this year, the theme
of International Tenants Day is Youth and Housing. To recognize this, a
section on youth is included in the report.

The State of The Unit report is being released by the Federation of Metro Tenants Associations as part of International Tenants Month.  Go to for more information.
