THE HOUSING CRISIS IS MAKING IT HARDER THAN EVER FOR ONTARIANS TO AFFORD A PLACE TO LIVE
Ontario’s housing crisis is getting worse. Rent is going up, housing supply is lagging, and incomes are not keeping pace with the cost of living. And while every Ontarian is feeling the stress and strain of finding and affording a home, some communities, including young or single-parent households, seniors on fixed-incomes, Indigenous people and newcomers to Canada, are more likely to experience homelessness as a result.
DEEPLY AFFORDABLE COMMUNITY HOUSING IS PART OF THE SOLUTION
Half a million Ontarians already rely on some form of deeply affordable community housing for stability, safety and shelter.
But we need more government help and support for this essential service.
Over 200,000 Ontarians are currently waiting as long as 12 years for deeply affordable housing support, and that number is growing. Making the problem worse, over the last ten years approximately 12,000 households needing support lost funding from provincial housing programs – increasing demand for accessible and deeply affordable housing.
ONTARIO’S GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO ENSURE DEEPLY AFFORDABLE HOUSING REMAINS AVAILABLE
Without action, more and more Ontarians face the prospect of becoming homeless.
It’s why we’re asking for your help in calling on candidates and party leaders to build, protect, and support deeply affordable housing.
Vote4Housing is a provincial non-partisan campaign, started during the 2022 provincial election, designed to engage and mobilize Ontarians to form a grassroots movement to rally public and political support for ending homelessness and housing need in Ontario.
