End Homelessness in Toronto by 2015 sign now

We are calling upon the City of Toronto to declare an End to Homelessness by 2015. This would involve a 10-year plan to help people on the brink of homelessness, provide housing support, and build new and truly affordable housing.

Such a declaration would also mount pressure on upper levels of government to recognize their responsibility in this crisis. The city of Red Deer in Alberta made a declaration like this in March 2005. So should we - because if we don't begin to plan to end homelessness, homelessness will not end.

Because homelessness is not something "natural" but rather has grown into a crisis due to government neglect; and because every human being has a Right to Shelter, I, the undersigned, call upon the city of Toronto to declare and plan an end to homelessness in the city by the year 2015.

While homelessness in Toronto cannot be solved by Toronto alone, the City must begin to plan to end homelessness. Such a declaration would also put pressure on the other levels of government to do their part.

    Homelessness is not a crime, but rather many crimes are perpetrated ON the homeless. Often, it was a crime aginst them which made them homeless to begin with, and it's a crime of a society to keep them homeless.
