We must commit to building sustainable affordable housing.
Average rents are up in every province and families are struggling to stay housed in communities where they live and work. With 1 in 5 households spending more than 50% of their income on housing, Canadians can’t afford to wait any longer. That’s why Alistair and the NDP have a plan to:
- Add half a million new units of quality affordable housing over the next 10 years.
- Take the pressure off first time buyers as they transition to homeowners by doubling the Home Buyer’s tax credit.
- Address the mold crisis in homes on First Nations reserves – once and for all.
- Continue working with provincial and municipal governments, and local companies and stakeholders to proactively address the issue in their respective communities.
