We are a collective of Tenant Associations from across Ontario.
No Demovictions was brought together by the Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations (FMTA) in March 2023.
July 29th Protest at 48 Grenoble Drive and the Ontario Science Centre
FMTA began bring tenant associations together who were facing demovictions in March 2023. The group began organizing in hopes of learning from one another's experiences and finding solutions to the irreversible damage being done to the stock of affordable housing in Toronto.
The three founding buildings were 25 St. Mary Street, 55 Brownlow Avenue, and 145 St. George Street. The group grows everyday as new buildings facing demoviction join our fight against unjust displacement.
There are currently over 70 buildings in Toronto currently facing demovictions, representing almost 10,000 people.
We are not anti-density or anti-development.
We support the need to build more housing density to accommodate a growing population. We welcome our new neighbours and will continue to support responsible development. However, at a time when we need more housing, not less, it is vital to grow rather than destroy the stock of affordable housing. While in many cases demovictions will build more units in the re-development, it is also removing up to 5,000 units of housing at the same time. With a vacancy rate of 1.7%, tenants are being displaced and forced to fight their neighbours for a very limited number of rental units in their price range.
