On June 1st 2021, a self-organized neighborhood group called the Kensington Market Community Land Trust (KMCLT) successfully bought their first building - 54 Kensington Avenue and took it off the private real estate market. For three years prior, the residents of the building, along with their neighbours and local political representatives protested and fought against the illegal eviction of 20+ tenants from this building. Now the building is owned by the community, through this democratically controlled community land trust. Come to our free online webinar to hear how Toronto's locals are fighting for affordable housing, despite seeing neighborhood changes rapidly displacing low-income tenants and those most marginalized. Hear the story of how this was possible, and bring your questions.
