Who We Are

Katarokwi Union of Tenants (KUT) is a group of people dedicated to improving the state of housing and rental tenure in the Katarokwi-Kingston region.

Through increasing awareness via locally-produced media, direct action, conducting research, public outreach, assisting tenants in their situations, and challenging our political institutions, we strive to make our neighbourhoods more affordable, equitable, just, and accessible for the working class and marginalized/dispossessed peoples. 

Thousands of local Kingstonians are paying more than 50% of their income towards housing, some living homeless. KUT is working to create an inclusive housing landscape, and building a voice for people’s rights.

If you have any questions, need help with a tenancy issue, or have a story to tell please send us a message and one of our members will gladly be in touch.
