TO the Government of Ontario:
Whereas, Ontarians are looking for housing that meets their needs and their budget; and,
Whereas, Affordable housing is the foundation for social and economic progress providing the stability for individuals and families to succeed in schools, to find and keep employment, and to retire in dignity; and,
Whereas, It is estimated that 46% of all renter households in Ontario were living in core housing need and more than 185,000 households were on waiting lists for subsidized housing; and,
Whereas, Ontario’s five-point housing supply plan speaks to building different types of housing, including affordable units, and commits to making it easier to build rental housing;
We call on the Government of Ontario to make immediate investments into affordable housing in Northumberland – Peterborough South.
