Over the past 15 years, federal support for affordable housing has dropped significantly. As the Canadian population continues to grow, affordable housing is not keeping up. As the first of the month approaches, thousands of Canadians are forced to make the agonizing choice between paying their rent and buying food.
Food banks tell us, year after year, that the high cost of housing is the number one reason why they are busier than ever. Please support us in pushing the government to invest in the health and well-being of Canadians through affordable housing.
