Title: Affordable Housing Is Crucial to Successful Integration of Immigrants in Toronto
Author: Murdie, Robert
Identifier: 00028
Abstract: The present rental housing market in Toronto does not have the variety, affordability, and access that is needed to help immigrants to successfully integrate into Canadian society. More attention needs to be paid to the unique housing challenges faced by many of Toronto’s immigrant groups. These groups face challenges based on size of household, income, and discriminatory barriers when searching for affordable housing.
