Toronto publishes a lot of data; most of which never gets the attention they deserve. One of these sets of data is the “Wellbeing Toronto - Housing” dataset. This dataset goes through all 140 of Toronto’s neighbourhoods and specifies the housing prices, rent bank applicants, social housing turnover, social housing units, and number of applicants on the social housing Wait List.
I wanted the viewer to see that there are many, many people on the wait list, not enough total social housing units, and there is very low turnover in the units that are there. Toronto is in a housing crisis and this problem needs attention immediately.
