Tenant Associations, Tenant School and Community Engagement

The FMTA currently offers tenants services including tenant association organizing, our tenant school education module and helping tenant engage in the legislative process. 

Tenant Association Development

One of the best ways to ensure your landlord follows the law and honours your tenant rights is to start a tenant association in your building. 

Want to Start a Tenant Association?

Our Tenant Association Organizers can help you set-up, maintain and grow your tenants association.  Learn how to start an association, increase membership, set an agenda, choose leadership and improve living standards for your neighbours and building by contacting Euridice at 416-479-0750 or [email protected] 

 

Tenant School

The FMTA runs an intensive series of workshops for tenants called the TENANT SCHOOL.  Students of the school get in-depth training on their rights under the law, learn about your rights as a tenant, grassroots activism, and how tenants can work with government to make change. Workshops are taught by lawyers and experienced tenant’s rights advocates. The program is held three or four times a year, and is geared towards tenant activists, tenant advocates, and tenant association leaders.

To find out when the next tenant school is being held or to register, please email Joeita Gupta at [email protected] or call our Outreach team at 416-413-9442.

 

Civic Engagement 

Do you want to improve tenant rights?

Consultations are held every year at the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government and within the indigenous nations that hold treaty title over Toronto. 

Tenants looking to volunteer with the FMTA and engage in the Civic process to improve tenant rights in Toronto can contact our office at [email protected] or call our Outreach team at 416-413-9442.
