International Tenants Day 2012 - September 29th!

This year, the FMTA is teaming up with several organizations in the GTA to hold our second annual International Tenants Day!

What is International Tenants Day?

International Tenants Day is an annual event coordinated by the Swedish-based
International Union of Tenants. It aims to promote tenant rights around the world while creating awareness of tenant issues.

International Tenants Day takes place on October 1st this year, but events in Toronto are being held on September 29th.


What is happening for International Tenants Day in Toronto?

Several
agencies are teaming up this year to turn promote International Tenants Day at the FMTA's Tenant Summit. We'll be running a series of sessions highlighting ways that tenants can plug into thwe issues that matter to them most at the Federal, Provincial, Municipal and landlord-tenant level.  This years summit focuses on Fairness for Tenants and the need to get tenants on even ground in terms of their tenancies. 

Materials will be available for tenants while the FMTA will kickoff the launch of its FAIRLEASE campaign.
