PETITION: Toronto Vacant Homes Tax
The City of Toronto is consulting residents about a proposed vacant homes tax. This could be a game changer to help rein in housing costs and free up supply, but only if we make it loud and clear that residents support it.
PETITION: Intergenerational Justice in Public Finance
Canadian governments have not committed to intergenerational justice in their budget decisions over the past four decades. Older generations have been prioritized, as younger Canadians fell further and further behind.
PETITION: A New Deal for Families
Gen Squeeze pinpoints three policies to reduce the time, income and service squeeze for those who want or have young kids. We call on local, provincial, and federal governments to implement a New Deal for Families built on three key planks.
PETITION: Homes First
We believe Canada's housing market should be regulated primarily to provide an efficient supply of affordable, suitable homes for community members to live in. The use of housing as windfall investments or places to park money needs to be immediately curbed.
LETTERS: Support a B.C. #TaxShift
Less tax on local income, more tax on unhealthy housing values, and better investments in young and old alike.
SUPPLY: Tell us about your housing project
