This election, ONPHA is working hard to ensure affordable housing is a key issue amongst candidates and parties. With its partners across the country and with the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association, ONPHA is putting its members first by advocating for their needs amongst Canada’s decision-makers.

Our Plan

Armed with our materials, ONPHA will engage with candidates in Ontario’s ridings to ensure they see the value community housing brings to the province. Read our materials below to learn more about what we’re saying in our meetings with candidates.
