#HOUSING4ALL

2015 CANADIAN FEDERAL ELECTION

THANK YOU FOR HELPING MAKE HOUSING A PRIORITY

Getting housing on the federal government’s agenda will only happen if elected candidates understand that affordable housing is important to voters. Help us advocate for housing by speaking with candidates in your community and sharing our infographics and tools. Together, we can make affordable housing a federal priority.

SPREAD THE WORD

We’ve created a series of infographics that you can share to help raise awareness of the benefits of affordable housing and the impact that unaffordable housing has on Canadians

GET INVOLVED

 

Help spread the word by getting involved in the national Housing for All campaign, which is being led by the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association. They’re bringing together housing and community organizations, tenants and members of the community to tell candidates and the federal parties why affordable housing must be a national priority.

THE NEED FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN ONTARIO

The need for affordable housing in Ontario is growing. Vacancy rates in many communities are dropping, make it difficult for Ontarians to find rental housing that they can afford. As a result, waiting lists for social housing, which is geared to tenants’ income, are growing in almost every community. Right now, there are more than 168,000 households waiting for a home they can afford.

At the same time, the social housing that’s been built over the past 60 years needs to be repaired and, in some cases, replaced. This housing is a valuable community asset – it must be preserved so that it can continue to help people earning low and moderate incomes.
