New Report on Rental Housing Inequities in Toronto

New Report on Rental Housing Inequities in Toronto

GLRC Director Luann Good Gingrich, GLRC Associate Naomi Lightman, and Social Planning Toronto Senior Researcher Beth Wilson have a new report on rental housing inequities tied to race and immigrant status in Toronto. Spaces and Places of Exclusion: Mapping Rental Housing Disparities for Toronto’s Racialized and Immigrant Communities is a first-of-its-kind study, mapping spatial exclusion by racialized and immigrant status in Toronto’s wards.

Visit Social Planning Toronto for more information and to access the full report.

There will be a live Q&A session for a discussion of the research report and implications for policy on Tuesday, November 24 from 3:30 - 4:30 pm ET. The session is part of Future Cities Canada’s Unexpected Solutions conference. #UnexpectedSolutions features six weeks of thought-provoking keynotes, hands-on workshops, panel discussions, film screenings and live Q&As.

Read media coverage of the report from the Toronto Star, Radio-Canada, Toronto Storeys, and Yahoo News.

Spaces and Places of Exclusion was produced through a research partnership between Social Planning Toronto (SPT) and York University, and is part of a larger project entitled Tracing and Addressing Social Exclusion in Canada (TASC). TASC is a five-year study supported by a SSHRC Insight Grant, led by Dr. Good Gingrich. TASC examines social exclusion in Canada through quantitative analyses of Statistics Canada datasets and is informed by qualitative exploration. SPT is a community partner in the project.
