A Red Letter Day For Housing
After so many years of hard work and preserverance, we celebrated a major accomplishment today: formally transferring ownership of 760 Toronto Community Housing Company (TCHC) homes to two affordable housing non-profit organizations.
The homes are scattered through the city, many of them in Ward 14 (Toronto-Danforth), and going forward they will be operated by two non-profits: Neighbourhood Land Trust and Circle Community Land Trust. The City of Toronto is investing in improving and maintaining the homes’ state of good repair, supported by the federal government.
