Affordable Housing

On Thursday, January 12th, 2012 in Get Involved

As of 2010, Canada had between 150,000 and 300,000 visible homeless, between 450,000 and 900,000 hidden homeless, 1.3 million households residing in substandard housing in need of major repairs, and 3.1 million households residing in unaffordable housing (requiring greater than a 30% share of income).

Help Elizabeth push the government to take immediate steps to ease the crisis of homelessness and housing affordability by creating a National Affordable Housing Program, and by reforming the tax system to provide tax benefits to rental investors for the construction, maintenance and upgrading of affordable rental housing.

Sign below or download this petition, have as many people as possible to sign it, and mail it – postage free – to either her Ottawa or Sidney offices. With as few as 25 signatures, Elizabeth can present your petition to the government in the House of Commons.

We call on the Government of Canada to, in accordance with the Plan on Housing and Homelessness created by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, take immediate steps to ease the crisis of homelessness and housing affordability by creating a National Affordable Housing Program, and by reforming the tax system to provide tax benefits to rental investors for the construction, maintenance and upgrading of affordable rental housing; and to consider all measures that would maximize the affordability of market rental housing.
