Toronto residents invited to attend final two #TacklePovertyTO panel sessions for public input
  
The City of Toronto will host the final two panel events in the #TacklePovertyTO series on the next two Monday evenings, addressing transportation and housing issues.

The session on transportation equity will be held on Monday, April 16 and the session on housing stability will be held on Monday, April 23, with both sessions running from 6 to 9 p.m. These panel discussion events will be held in the rotunda of City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Toronto residents are invited to attend to provide their input on next steps to achieve transportation equity for residents living on low incomes and their views on strategic actions the City can pursue to increase the supply of stable and affordable housing.

The information gathered at these sessions, together with information provided at three earlier panels the City held on the themes of quality jobs and livable incomes, food access and service access, will help shape the Toronto Poverty Reduction Strategy's next term (2019 to 2022).

In 2015, Toronto City Council approved a 20-year poverty reduction strategy to take concrete action to reduce poverty and ensure all residents can live with dignity. More information about the City's achievements to date to reduce poverty is available at https://bit.ly/2qp5RTq.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities.
