Forced Out: Evictions, Race, and Poverty in Toronto

Sep 16, 2020 | Resource Centre, Social Inclusion

The Wellesley Institute is a registered non-profit charity, working on research and policy to improve health and health equity in the Great Toronto Area (GTA) through action on the social determinants of health. They have recently published a preliminary report Forced Out: Evictions, Race, and Poverty in Toronto. Scott Leon, one of the authors of the study, says “this study highlights the stark disparities in eviction filings across Toronto prior to COVID-19. Eviction filing rates were twice as high in neighbourhoods where more low-income renters live. Independent of this association, we also find that Toronto has a racialized eviction problem. Black Torontonians may be at increased risk of eviction.”
