Fraternities and Sororities Consultation - November 29th

Neighbours,

Tomorrow night from 6:30 – 8:30pm at Toronto City Hall, Municipal Licensing and Standards staff are hosting a consultation on Fraternities and Soroities, included in the multi-tenant rooming house work as a result of my request to license and regulate fraternities and sororities as multi-tenant housing.

Currently, fraternity and sorority houses are exempted from the regulatory framework in place for multi-tenant houses. Licensing these houses not only provides the City with a mechanism to effectively respond to these concerns, but also entitles those who live in the houses a guarantee that their living environments meet building code and safety standard requirements. It can also provide the city with a mechanism to deal with houses that are chronically unsafe, for both residents and visitors, and those with demonstrated issues related to problematic behaviour. Without a proper regulatory framework, fraternity and sorority houses post a risk not just to residents, but to those who live in and visit them.

Hope to see you there!

Meeting Details:

6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday, November 29
CIty Hall, Committee Room #2
