Affordable Housing

Issue Paper

 

 

Tom Galloway on

AFFORDABLE HOUSING

 

Affordable Housing is a key Social Service responsibility of the Region.  Working with senior levels of government, we provide direct affordable housing units, administer and oversee a large inventory of non-profit housing and administer a number of housing subsidy programs.  The Region has been singled out on numerous occasions by the Province and other providers as being a leading municipality in the social housing field.  We have set and met successive aggressive new unit targets. But yet there is so much more that could be done and waiting lists continue.

 

  • We must relentlessly lobby senior levels of government for new funding for Affordable Housing, rent supplement programs and other initiatives that provide secure housing

 

  • Supportive Housing initiatives should be a top priority

 

  • Partnerships with nonprofits or for profit housing providers need to continue and be expanded

 

  • In cooperation with various local Social Service agencies, we need to identify constraints and opportunities
