In 2005 a total of 32,700 people stayed in Toronto's emergency shelters; 4,600 were children. (Shelter, Support & Housing Administration, Quick facts) The City's first homeless count in April 2006 found 5,052 sheltered and unsheltered homeless in Toronto. Only part of the City was surveyed and "hidden" homeless (couch surfing, doubling up, etc.) were not counted. Affordable housing was identified as a top priority by the people who participated in Mayor Miller's Listening to Toronto pre-budget public consultation sessions held in November 2004 In Toronto The social housing waiting list stood at 66,858 households as of March, 2006. Number of households actually housed from the list in 2005 was 4,418 (Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario - ACTO). We the undersigned are petitioning the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to make affordable housing a priority. Make Affordable Housing Permanent.
