Nov 22, 2021 - Community Action to Call for Social Housing

When: Monday November 22nd, 11am
Where: 214 - 230 Sherbourne St

The housing crisis is being felt across the country by an increasing number of people. The impact of this is felt most severely by those forced into states of homelessness. In the City of Toronto, there are well over 8,700 people who are homeless, with emergency shelters full and over 1,000 people sleeping outside each night and many more forced to sleep in unsafe situations or couch surf.

The Dundas/Sherbourne area has been the epicenter of the housing and homelessness crisis in Toronto for decades. The property at 214-230 Sherbourne is one glaring example of this devastating situation but also is an example of a possible site of aid. The land and rooming house have been vacant for over a decade while hundreds of homeless people suffer outside its doorstep. It is also only a few blocks away from the site where Drina Joubert froze to death in the back of a pickup truck in 1985. In 2018, the City passed a motion to purchase or expropriate the site for social housing, yet we continue to wait for this action to be taken. We wait for housing as people continue to suffer and to die homeless.
