Homeless after fire

r1 ...

PAOV — Approximately 1,500 tenants, many of them families with children, were displaced from their homes after a fire at an apartment building in Toronto. The landlord has so far funded hotel accommodation for those displaced, but announced last week that funding for hotels will stop as of November 30. This decision will leave many tenants homeless. Mark, a victim of the fire, has started this petition to ask the City and the building’s owner to provide accommodations to all tenants until the restoration is complete. If you agree, add your name.

A six-alarm electrical fire occurred at 650 Parliament
August 21, 2018. As a result of the fire, approximately 1,500 tenants and residents including approximately 300 children were displaced from their homes.

Victims of the fire were at first housed by the City of Toronto and the Red Cross. 650 Parliament owners started providing assistance at the beginning of October including providing hotel accommodations.

On November 15, management decided to end funding for over 300 residents living in hotels. On December 1, these residents will be homeless.

Most of these residents are either immigrant families or people suffering from disabilities. None of them have alternative accommodations and will end up in shelters.

The City of Toronto has the resources to help coordinate housing efforts for victims of the fire.

Bleeman Holdings - the owner of 650 Parliament - has the resources to help coordinate housing efforts for victims of the fire.

I am asking both the City of Toronto and the owner of 650 Parliament to work together and coordinate an adequate response to the housing situation facing tenants.

The owner of 650 Parliament and the City of Toronto should provide accommodations to ALL tenants until restoration is completed.

If the owner of 650 Parliament refuses to adequately house tenants, the city should coordinate the effort and send Bleeman Holdings the bill.
