Ward 13 Housing Clinics: A Resounding Success for Toronto-Centre Constituents

From April 25 to May 31, hundreds of Ward 13 residents received vital housing support and other essential City services. These clinics provided a lifeline for individuals on the Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) Housing Centralized Waiting List and those seeking assistance in applying for RGI housing.

I want to thank all residents and staff who participated in the MyAccesstoHousingTO Sign-Up Clinics hosted by my office, in collaboration with Access to Housing and Housing Help Centres.

These clinics were held at various community centers across the ward, including Wellesley Community Center, Regent Park Community Center, and St. Lawrence Community Recreation Center. They were strategically located to ensure accessibility for all constituents.

The inclusion of Social Development, Finance & Administration (SDFA) staff on select dates further expanded the range of services available, covering everything from recreation fee subsidies to medical benefits. During the clinics, residents were able to sign up on the new MyAccesstoHousingTO system, ensuring their applications remained active and updated. Staff were on hand to guide applicants through the choice-based housing offer process and provide assistance with application updates. Individuals seeking additional support with subsidies were able to access specialized help from SDFA staff, simplifying the process and ensuring that no one was left behind.

The Ward 13 Housing Clinics stand as an example of collaborative efforts to address housing challenges and support the well-being of all residents particularly those in greater need of affordable housing. I am thrilled to see the positive impact these clinics have brought to our community and I will continue to bring programs and services to the doorsteps of those who need it most. Stay tuned.
