Election 2017

Provincial General Election - May 9, 2017

Housing is a key topic for voters in the upcoming provincial election on May 9. Approximately 96% of residents live in market-provided homes across Canada, whether owned or rented. Protecting housing affordability, and ensuring that homes are within the financial reach of residents, will reduce pressures on social housing so that available units serve those in most urgent need.
