Toronto has seen remarkable growth of community land trusts (CLTs) in the last 10 years. These CLTs have been established as community-led alternatives to address issues of eviction, displacement, structural racism and speculation. Now, they have come to embody the second generation of the Canadian CLT movement. Please join this panel discussion to learn how Toronto’s CLTs are pursuing transformative changes built on the principles of housing justice, racial equity and economic democracy.
