It’s been a tough year for young Canadians. Housing prices remain high, income growth remains sluggish, and cost increases continue to mount. But together, we’ve helped achieve significant wins in politics and the marketplace to help counteract this powerful 360-degree squeeze.
After more than 50 briefings with politicians and staff, we’ve helped achieve some “Homes First” policy changes in B.C. and Ontario
Between 339 print stories and 99 TV and Radio interviews, we’ve brought significant attention to the needs of a younger demographic
Through our Benefits program, we’ve put over $30,000 back into the pockets of young Canadians through better deals in the marketplace
In celebration of our wins, Paul Kershaw and the gang hosted a Gen Squeeze BBQ at the PNE on Sunday, August 27! The weather was perfect as Squeezers enjoyed their lunch, while getting to know each other and enjoying the perfect summer sounds and smells of the Fair at the PNE.

A big thank you to our sponsors – Kawkab Jamal and Associates and Edge Benefits – who helped us make this fun event a smokin’ deal for everyone!
Why were we so delighted to introduce Kawkab Jamal and Edge Benefits? They're our newest benefits partners who will be launching our extended health care plan on Sept. 1, 2017 (in fact, you can already check out the product and get a quote via our Benefits page.)
And last but not least, a shout out to our amazing volunteers who helped make the special day run so smoothly!

But there’s still lots of work left to do this fall. With school starting in just a week and then that crazy ramp up leading to the holidays, we’re determined to keep you engaged in the #CodeRed campaign as we continue pressuring government to fulfill promises made on the housing front and more.
