Support Affordable Housing

Sign the Petition

A 'Transit-Oriented Community' (TOC) is a special arrangement between Infrastructure Ontario and a private developer to allow for significant increases in density at stations along the Ontario Line.

A TOC is being planned for the future Gerrard Station on the Ontario Line at Riverdale Plaza. You can read the report here. 

Since this TOC was announced, I have pressed Infrastructure Ontario and the developer ChoiceREIT to add affordable housing into their plan. I am very disappointed that no commitment to include affordable housing has been made.

At Toronto and East York Community Council I submitted the following motions which City Council will debate at our May meeting:

1. City Council request the Provincial Government require a minimum of 20 percent affordable housing on the Provincial Transit Oriented Community site at Gerrard/Carlaw. 

2. City Council request ChoiceReit and Infrastructure Ontario to make a public commitment to add 20 percent of affordable units for 50 years guaranteed affordability to the their proposed Rezoning at the Provincial Transit Oriented Community site at Gerrard and Carlaw.

I know our community strongly supports more affordable housing.

Sign my petition to make your voice heard!

Will you sign?

To: Toronto City Council

I am calling on you to support the recommendations from Toronto and East York Community Council requesting the Province, Infrastructure Ontario & the developer to include a minimum of 20% affordable housing at the Transit Oriented Community at the Gerrard/Carlaw Transit Oriented Community.
