New Report on Rental Housing Inequities in Toronto

GLRC Director Luann Good Gingrich, GLRC Associate Naomi Lightman, and Social Planning Toronto Senior Researcher Beth Wilson have a new report on rental housing inequities tied to race and immigrant status in Toronto. Spaces and Places of Exclusion: Mapping Rental Housing Disparities for Toronto’s Racialized and Immigrant Communities is a first-of-its-kind study, mapping spatial exclusion by racialized and immigrant status in Toronto’s wards.

Spaces and Places of Exclusion was produced through a research partnership between Social Planning Toronto (SPT) and York University, and is part of a larger project entitled Tracing and Addressing Social Exclusion in Canada (TASC). TASC is a five-year study supported by a SSHRC Insight Grant, led by Dr. Good Gingrich. TASC examines social exclusion in Canada through quantitative analyses of Statistics Canada datasets and is informed by qualitative exploration. SPT is a community partner in the project.
