We’ve paired with MPP Jessica Bell to find out what the market is most worried about as we approach the long winter months.

 

Please take our survey so we can better inform the official opposition on what the market needs to help us survive the pandemic this winter

 

MPP Jessica Bell Small Business Round Table

 

Tomorrow there will be a Small Business RoundTable, with guests MPP Catherine Fife, Official Opposition Critic for Economic Growth and Job Creation and John Kiru, Executive Director of TABIA (Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas).

 

We will be discussing the impact of the pandemic on local business, the governments’ response, and the ONDP’s Save Main Street plan.

 

We are losing our “Main Streets” which threatens our economy, our jobs, and the vibrancy of our neighbourhoods. That’s why the ONDP is calling for:

 

  • A ban on all evictions, lockouts or eviction threats by commercial landlords until the pandemic ends
  • A utility payment freeze for small and medium-sized businesses
  • A stand-alone emergency 75 per cent commercial rent subsidy, up to $10,000 per month
  • A fund for businesses that face historic barriers

 

 

The virtual gathering will be held on Thursday October 22nd

 

If you would like to join in the conversation please register here.

 

If you have questions in advance of the Round Table, please submit them by email to jbell-co@ndp.on.ca.

In the spring, as our communities began to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Official Opposition released a Saving Main Street plan. Last Friday, the working document was re-released, with updates for changed and changing conditions for small businesses and workers in our current context.
Saving Main Street: A Plan for Jobs and Financial Security for Working People offers a supportive and sustainable framework and includes:
  • Plan includes a ban on all commercial evictions,
  • a 75 per cent commercial rent subsidy,
  • sick days for all,
  • a fund to help businesses with safe-reopening costs or remote-work set-up costs,
  • more non-profit and public child care spaces for working parents,
  • and end to insurance gouging and insurance denials.

 

Please  schedule a call with Jessica Bell at 416 535 7206 or send feedback to

KENSINGTON MARKET REDEVELOPMENT DETAILS

​The current proposal is for a 5-storey, student-focused residential rental building with 77 units and ground-floor retail space. The building provides a 3-storey base that complements the 2-3 storey buildings on St. Andrew Street and Kensington Avenue, and steps back from the base on the 4th and 5th floors. The building will feature a mix of unit sizes, with approximately 80% studios and 1-bedroom units and 20% 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units to accommodate a variety of residents, including students and families. The design respects Kensington’s unique mixed-use character and incorporates enhancements to the public realm to contribute to the active streetscape that distinguishes this neighborhood.
