Since May of 1998 the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee has been putting forth the demand for the establishment of a national housing strategy, and the implementation of the '!% Solution' (an overall budgetary increase of one per cent annually by all levels of government to fund affordable housing).

On October 2, 1999, nearly two thousand people (including many who were themselves homeless) marched through the streets of downtown Toronto in support of these demands.
