The overall focus of the Tenants First, which was unanimously approved by Council in July 2017, is to implement a plan in which Toronto Community Housing focuses on being a social housing landlord, where buildings are in a good state of repair, and tenants are connected to appropriate services and active participants in their communities.

The goal is to lay out a vision where Toronto Community Housing focuses on being a social housing landlord, where buildings are in a good state of repair, and tenants are connected to appropriate services and active participants in their communities.

What Are the Key Changes Being Proposed in Phase One of the Plan?

There are three major recommendations that were proposed to Executive Committee on June 19.

  1. The creation of a new Seniors Housing and Services entity that is more directly
    accountable to City Council and is responsible for the management of 83
    seniors-designated buildings currently within the TCHC portfolio.
  2. A New TCHC and the start of a process for redefining TCHC’s mandate to focus its role as a social housing provider serving the needs of families, youth, vulnerable tenants and seniors living in mixed buildings.
  3. Adequate funding for both TCHC and the proposed new Seniors Housing and Services entity.
