More accessible affordable housing

The National Housing Strategy (NHS) includes important commitments to fund up to 2,400 new housing units for people with developmental disabilities. Programs within the NHS include funding for individuals with disabilities. While this funding is welcome, more must be done to address the severe gap in Canada’s efforts to alleviate poverty among the most vulnerable and to reduce affordable housing wait lists. 

Recommendations

Continuing the implementation of the National Housing Strategy to increase capital and operating funding investments for ethnocultural affordable housing initiatives.

Continuing the National Housing Strategy and, where possible, working with the provinces and local service managers to enhance evidence-based, best practice models to ensure effective integration among health and housing policies. 

Question for Candidates

Will you continue the National Housing Strategy and increase capital and operating funding investments for ethnocultural affordable housing initiatives?
