Food, water and shelter are some of the most fundamental human rights, yet Canada is facing an affordable housing and homelessness crisis.
Everything begins with housing – without it, no one can truly live life with dignity.
Take the people’s pledge and join our National Housing Day of Action – take to the streets and march for the right to housing!
Fri, 18 November 2016
12:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
Queen’s Park (outside front steps)
111 Wellesley St W, Toronto
Our message to the government is simple:
“This is Canada’s moment to make history. The federal and provincial governments have made the commitment to provide adequate housing to all. We, the people, are here to make a pledge that we will hold the government accountable to their promise.
- No one shall ever feel a loss of their dignity because they don’t have a home.
- No one shall ever have to choose between adequate food and housing.
- No one shall ever have to live on our streets and sidewalks, or worry they may end up there.
- No one shall ever have to pass on life’s opportunities because they don’t have a place to call home.
This is our pledge to everyone in Canada. Join our movement. Make your voice heard. Together let’s make a commitment that we will hold the government accountable.”
We encourage you to bring noise makers – pots, pants, cans, shakers, drums, etc. and join the drummers as we march!
