Check out this great guide on getting new pronouns right! This link is also a great resource to practice using gender-neutral pronouns: www.practicewithpronouns.com/#/?_k=g3n9s9 #InternationalPronounsDay

At the Centre, we acknowledge how important it is to use and respect preferred pronouns. We practice this daily - and ask our clients to do the same. Happy International Pronouns Day! ... See moreSee less

Happy International Pronouns Day! What are pronouns? Pronouns are words that are used to describe a person, most often through gender (or lack thereof). Traditional Binary Pronouns include he/him/his and she/her/hers. Gender-Neutral Pronouns include they/them/theirs, ey/em/eirs, ney/nem/nirs, ze/zir/zirs, and many more. What is International Pronouns Day? International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting, and valid identities.

💡It’s FAQ Friday! We've recently had a few groups in our community ask if we are available to speak at in-person events.

We are thrilled that our community is interested in learning more about the Centre and the issues of homelessness in Windsor-Essex. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to speak at in-person events at this time. The Centre is doing everything we can to combat the spread of the virus and prevent another wave.

Still want to learn more?

Check out our website WelcomeCentreShelter.com. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for updates and informative posts - or shoot us a message with any questions you have! 😊 We aim to be a knowledgable resource for our community.

Did you know that landlords are responsible for yard and lawn care of a rental unit according to Ontario Law?

According to the Residential Tenancies Act of 2006, Landlords are responsible for maintaining the property of a rental unit. This includes any spaces that are not considered the unit itself. For example, if you rent a room only, your landlord is legally responsible for maintaining the common areas of the home such as hallways, stairwells, laundry rooms, kitchens, and the yard. This means that landlords are responsible for cutting the lawn, shovelling snow, and removing ice from pathways. The only exception to this is if a tenant is renting the entire house. In that case, tenants are typically expected to maintain the yard.

Is your landlord upholding this responsibility? If not, you can contact the Landlord Tenant Board and submit an application to file a Breach of Maintenance Obligations.

Emma PotterThanks for sharing! I'm renting a room and with being disabled I was already concerned about the snow issue coming. The landlord has been good about the grass but don't know how it'll be with winter. Hoping it'll be good and not a long wait to get done.
