All Canadians can afford a good home by 2030
A growing number of younger people and newcomers to Canada are facing crushing unaffordability thanks to prices that rose over 300% since 2000, dragging up rent costs in their wake. These same skyrocketing prices are creating tax-free wealth for many home owners, especially older Canadians who had the good fortune to buy into the market decades ago.
No silver bullet can solve this complex problem, so we have to use silver buckshot.
Our housing policy solutions map out all the paths and principles we should follow to make homes affordable for all Canadians.
Reaching our goal is a massive undertaking, so we're working alongside many other researchers and advocates in Canada's housing ecosystem. We support the leadership others provide to end homelessness, scale up non-market housing, and fix the regular housing market in which most Canadians find homes as owners or renters. We're currently focused on breaking Canada's addiction to high and rising home values.
