Anglican bishop speaks to housing emergency in Ontario

TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2020 /CNW/ - The Right Reverend Andrew Asbil, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, will hold a press conference on Wednesday, November 18th at 11:30 a.m., at the encampment outside the Church of the Holy Trinity, Trinity Square, Toronto to demand immediate action on housing from the provincial and municipal governments as the COVID-19 crisis continues.

November 22nd is the National Day for Housing, and the Anglican Diocese of Toronto is launching a "Housing Matters" campaign to prevent and address homelessness in the face of a COVID-19 winter.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise and winter approaches, it is more important than ever for us to act and advocate for the safety and health of homeless and precariously-housed Ontarians.

The campaign asks for the following:

Anglican parishes around the Diocese will be encouraged to write letters to their government officials putting forward these demands.  At the same time, Anglicans are also being encouraged to increase their contributions to the Diocesan FaithWorks partner ministries, which help to meet the needs of thousands of individuals, including those in housing need, across the Diocese.
