Last night many of our neighbours were affected by the fire on Argyle. I want to take this opportunity to thank our first responders who worked diligently throughout the night, as well as to West Neighbourhood House and the many neighbours who opened their doors to help those impacted.

As per the City’s emergency social service policy, displaced residents are eligible to receive assistance through the Canadian Red Cross. Assistance will be provided on a case-by-case and can include 14 days in a hotel, clothing, food, tokens, etc.

The Red Cross works very closely with the City’s social services to provide additional support as required. Impacted residents are encouraged to contact the Canadian Red Cross at 416-676-8559.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 416-392-4009 or by email at
