Toronto's City Manager is warning some families could find themselves without a home as a result of the Ford government's proposed cuts to a program aimed at supporting low-income families with young children.

Buried in the slow trickle-out of Ontario's post-budget cuts is a proposal to eliminate the Transition Child Benefit, a program providing "basic necessities" to support low-income children, particularly those with parents who recently lost their job or the children of refugee claimants.

According to a letter to Toronto's mayor and council members dated May 9, City Manager Chris Murray warned Ford's proposal to eliminate the TCB risks straining the city's family shelter system, as current recipients may be "unable to secure or maintain their housing."
