Please join us to watch inspiring clips from the SkyWorks documentary Home Safe Toronto which delves into the lives of some of Toronto’s families who are struggling to keep a roof over their heads, put food on their plates, and stay healthy.

Following the film segments, take part in an interactive discussion with researchers about the evidence on inadequate housing, health outcomes, and food insecurity and hear from participants featured in the film.
