Important dates (phases)

2020

  • In the first quarter of 2020, building and townhouse communities across Toronto Community Housing (TCHC), including those in direct and contract managed communities and the Seniors Housing Unit, participated in the selection of their preferred local engagement model at the building/townhouse level.
  • In March 2020, TCHC suspended all engagement activities due to COVID-19. Not all communities were able to select their preferred local engagement model at the building/townhouse level before activities were stopped.
  • Based on approvals from Toronto Public Health and the TCHC Board of Directors, TCHC staff have resumed the tenant election process in a multi-phased approach. Tenant elections will be held across the portfolio in three phases. 
  • Buildings in phase one completed their elections in November 2020. 


2021

We know that participating in elections during a pandemic is not easy, and we appreciate all tenants who choose to take part. We have used feedback from communities in phase one to update the process for the rest of the phases.

Communities in phase two are expected to have established their tenant leadership (Tenant Elections completed) by the end of August 2021. Communities in phase three will complete their elections by the end of December 2021.
