33% of Toronto Homeless Shelter Residents are Students Who Can’t Afford Rent



A third of all residents in one Toronto-area homeless shelter are students who are unable to afford rent in the city’s massively inflated housing bubble, a staff member told the media.

The shocking figure was made public during an Aug. 25 Bloomberg article carried in Canada’s Financial Post by Mark Aston, an employee at Covenant House Toronto, a local homeless shelter.
