The FMTA Tenant Summit is a gathering of tenants and tenants associations to discuss strategies for organization and advocacy in the city of Toronto. Above Guideline Rent Increases are on the rise throughout the city. Massive gentrification is a reality in almost every neighbourhood. And a great number of infills* are being approved by the City of Toronto.
Toronto tenants need to think about how to protect their rights when facing an onslaught of development and a rising cost of living.
To discuss these questions and search for solutions to our problems, FMTA holds annual Toronto Tenant Summits. Sponsored by the Federation of Metro Tenants (FMTA) and supported by the Akelius Tenants Network (ATN) and The Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario (ACTO). The purpose of the summit is for tenants and tenants associations to network, discuss common issues and their solutions, and to create a unified plan of action to tackle problems facing us all.
*Infills are buildings erected in the backyard of other buildings, subjecting resident tenants to a prolonged construction environment, limitation in air flow and loss of sunlight.
