Today is Giving Tuesday, and there are many reasons to give to CERA

Did you know that less than 5% of CERA’s annual budget comes from donations? 

In 2018, we:

  • provided free legal information and advocacy supports to over 1300Ontario renters facing eviction or discrimination
  • delivered over 70 education workshops in eight Ontario communities, and continued to develop our unique and responsive plain-language resources for renters
  • established 17+ new formal partnerships with allies to expand our impact across Ontario
  • participated in numerous consultations, including for Canada’s National Housing Strategy and the United Nations Universal Periodic Review of Canada

Almost all of our funding is tied directly to our project work, which allows us to engage in meaningful initiatives dedicated to improving equity in housing, but it also means that we have very little space to respond to urgent or emerging situations on the ground.

As 2018 comes to an end, we are turning to you for help to increase our capacity to respond quickly to emerging priorities and key issues in human rights in housing in the year ahead. Your donation will support responsive legal actions, public advocacy, research and policy development in 2019 – the important, time sensitive work that our project funding doesn’t cover.

Can you commit to defending equality in rental housing in Ontario with a donation of $20, $100, or $250 – or any amount meaningful to you?

Thank you for your generous support.

Sincerely,

Alyssa Brierley
Executive Director and General Counsel
