Join us in standing
up for tenants rights!
[Demovictions are] a regular occurrence in Toronto these days. There's a lot of buildings in fairly good repair that are getting torn down for a quick buck.

We are coming together on International Tenants Day, on Monday, October 2nd at 5PM, to demand immediate action from the City of Toronto to address profit-driven demovictions and tenants rights.
There are over 70 building applications in the City of Toronto that will demolish dense purpose-built rental buildings to build luxury condominiums.
This practice is a net negative for affordable housing in the City of Toronto for a number of reasons:
👉 We are demolishing the limited stock of affordable purpose-built rentals in Toronto at a rate faster than we are building them.
👉 It creates financial, emotional, and physical hardship for displaced tenants who are paying out of pocket for inadequate rent gap payments, are forced to find accommodation in a city where rental vacancy is at 1.7%, are removed from their communities and support networks, and experience high levels of emotional stress and anxiety due to uncertainty and instability.
👉 Bill 97 further erodes rental replacement by-laws, which may allow developers to not compensate tenants, not provide moving support, and not offer tenants a replacement unit in the new building after construction.
WHEN: Monday, October 2nd at 5PM
WHERE: Meet at City Hall, 100 Queen Street West
WHO: No Demovictions in partnership with tenant groups, organizations, and associations.

On Saturday, July 29th at 1PM, we organized a rally at 48 Grenoble Drive in Flemingdon Park to take a stand against profit driven demolitions in the neighbourhood.
48 Grenoble Building Sign
Invest in our communities, stop displacement.
48 Grenoble Drive is a 9-storey building set to be demolished and re-developed, removing 109 rent-controlled affordable units from the neighbourhood in favour of luxury condos.
In addition, the Ontario Science Centre is set to be demolished and moved to Ontario Place, an expensive and unnecessary move that will cost millions of dollars. What do both of these developments have in common?
👉 They both prioritize the needs of developers over the needs of the community or local residents
👉 They produce unnecessary environmental waste at a time when there is a construction labour crunch
WHEN: Saturday, July 29th at 1PM
WHERE: 48 Grenoble Drive to Valley Park Middle School (12 minute walk)
WHO: No Demovictions and OPSEU Local 549
