When it comes to housing, Trudeau’s Liberal government has pulled the rug out from under Canadians. They campaigned on a housing plan, but have wasted time and held back funding for years instead of fixing the problem.
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.
We’re calling for immediate action to:
- Add half a million new units of quality affordable housing over the next 10 years
- Help renters who are at the breaking point before it’s too late with a rental subsidy in the 2019 budget
- Take the pressure off first time buyers as they transition to homeowners by doubling the Home Buyer’s tax credit
