Announcement from the FMTA

For over 35 years, the Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations (FMTA) has been committed to working tirelessly with and for tenants, advocating for better rights for all tenants in Toronto. Founded in 1974, we are the oldest and largest tenant federation in Canada, comprised of affiliated tenant associations with over 3,000 individual members.

 

Our commitment to tenants and tenant rights compels us to continue to seek improvements in our organization.

 

Effective July 6, 2010, Geordie Dent, current Tenant Hotline Coordinator, will become interim-Executive Director of the FMTA. Moving to an Executive Director model will allow us to develop and implement overall organizational strategies and programs that will benefit all tenants across Toronto. Our core services - Tenant Hotline, Outreach/Organizing and Tenant Education Program - will continue and we will be looking to build upon these programs and services through partnerships and opportunities as we strive to provide the best support for tenants in Toronto.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to also wish Dan McIntyre, outgoing Outreach and Organizing Coordinator, all the best in his future endeavours. Dan has been a long-standing advocate for tenant rights in Toronto and we thank him for his service and contributions to the FMTA.

 

We look forward to working with you as we move forward and strive for stronger and better rights for tenants in Toronto and beyond.

 

Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Sincerely,

 

Effie Vlachoyannacos

Board Chair,

Federation of Metro Tenants Associations
