Close the Housing Gap campaign to enter new phase
  
The City of Toronto and Toronto Community Housing will announce an exciting new phase in the Close the Housing Gap advocacy campaign, unveiling the poster that will appear in 135 bus shelters throughout Toronto and in Ottawa.

Campaign co-chairs Councillor Ana Bailão (Ward 18 Davenport), Chair of the Affordable Housing Committee, and Toronto Community Housing Chair Bud Purves, along with Toronto Community Housing President and CEO Gene Jones, will be joined by social housing tenants and representatives from supporting organizations.

Date: Thursday, September 5
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Bus shelter, Queen's Park Crescent East (between College and Grosvenor Streets)

The Close the Housing Gap campaign is focused on persuading the federal and provincial governments to continue funding social housing at existing levels and provide new, long-term funding for social housing repairs.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
