Homelessness is created by the Ontario Government and it is about rent
We need to be very clear about why homelessness is rising in Ontario. The numbers of people without housing and sleeping in shelters. It is not the result of a lack of apartments.People end up homeless because they are poor. Most receive either OW or ODSP. The increase in homelessness is the direct result of a lack of rent money; specifically the fact that neither ODSP and OW provide enough rent money to rent anything anywhere in Toronto.
