New Program in Hamilton to Support New Canadians with Landlord-tenant Issues

Social Planning and Research Council (SPRC)

The program will provide community-based legal education to social service providers and community leaders in the Beasley and Riverdale neighbourhoods, to better inform them on issues such as tenant rights and bylaws — information that they will then be able to take back and share with residents.

A new program by the Social Planning and Research Council (SPRC) hopes to better support new Canadians at risk of displacement in quickly gentrifying Hamilton. The [Dis]placement Project is a partnership between the SPRC, Hamilton Comminity Legal Clinic, and Core Collaborative Learning. It's being funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario to support new Canadians with landlord-tenant issues.
