Affordable Housing in Toronto

By Kathryn Hill

The inability to find affordable housing in Toronto is one of the main reasons that families seek emergency shelter and stay with us for an average of 5 months. In 2018-19, 45% of families we served had experienced a housing crisis or eviction.

For Sean Gadon, the City of Toronto’s Director of Affordable Housing, this issue has been a lifelong cause. Here in this picture, Sean is speaking in support of the new development including our purpose-built family shelter at our community meeting, July 2015. Sean will retire from a 40-year career later this month. You can read about it in this Toronto Star article.
