How Bullet Proof is the Toronto Community Housing Corporation?
This research study revolves around a silenced conversation within Toronto, Canada’s Somali community living in Toronto Community Housing. The purpose of the study is to explore the reasons behind the substantial increase in gun-related violence among Somali-Canadian youth, and whether living in low-income housing provided through the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) influences the high death rate of Somali Canadian youth. The role of TCHC resources and TCHC board representation is considered. Through the lens of the social determinants of health, this study investigates the relationship among socio-economic status, government housing, race, gender, and violence for Somali families living in TCHC-sponsored housing in Toronto neighbourhoods.
