Welcome back readers of Tough Times – Peel’s only social justice newspaper! It has been a while, but we are back! Tough Times is written by, for, and with people of lived experience of poverty and homelessness.

Tough Times is published by the Peel Poverty Action Group (PPAG) with support of the Peel Alliance to End Homelessness (PAEH) and with generous funding from the Region of Peel.
