Business-owners in the Church & Wellesley Village need immediate help to ensure their doors can open again once it is safe. All community members deserve to have a place to call home and have supports in place to ensure their safety and well-being and the collective safety of the neighbourhood.
The Church & Wellesley Village is one of the main queer and Trans community hubs in Ontario and has a significant cultural value. 2SLGBTQ+ communities are disproportionately affected by the pandemic. It is imperative that queer and Trans owned businesses survive and continue to thrive in the Village, despite paying some of the highest commercial rents in Ontario. It is also imperative that all those who call this community home are housed with appropriate supports.
We call on the government to:
Add your name and take action now.
Thank you for your support.
Take the next step and help spread the word.
