Admin and Education
A subset of the O & O team, the FMTA Admin Assistant undertakes research and communications for the FMTA, researches and maps all demolition applications in the City of Toronto and also provides Tenant Education Workshops to Newcomer groups in the City.
Tenant School Project
The Tenant School Project is funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario to provide in-depth classroom style training to settlement workers in Toronto and the GTA. The project trains settlement workers over 6 weeks on different elements of the law and includes many resources and presenters from the legal aid clinic system.
Community Development Project Worker
The Community Development Project Worker is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation to help tenants develop tenant associations to create opportunities for residents to engage with each other through tenant group leadership activities and partnerships with community agencies across Toronto. The CDPW meets with tenants directly in their buildings and helps them form a tenant association. The project also helps tenant decide on the collective needs of a building and hooks them up with community partners to meet their goals.
The FMTA has received funding from multiple sources over the years to create, edit, and publish numerous guides, manuals, fact-sheets, sample letters and newsletters aimed at helping tenants better understand their rights. Where possible, we aim to translate these materials into different languages. We currently have materials in 23 different languages.
