Tell federal parties: Younger Canadians need affordable homes
Email your federal candidates urging them to commit to meaningful housing plans.

Canada’s housing market is out of control and people in their 20s, 30s and 40s are feeling the squeeze.

Whoever wins the October federal election needs to take serious action to ensure all Canadians – including younger ones – have a good, affordable place to live.

Send a letter to federal election candidates, urging them to commit to meaningful action that ensures ALL Canadians can afford a good home.

Political parties are deciding right now what steps they would take to solve the housing crisis, if elected. But none of the parties have put forward a plan yet that could close the gap for young Canadians. Now is the time to make your voice heard.

Homes in Canada cost up to 4x what a typical younger person can afford, according to Gen Squeeze research. 40% of Canadians face unaffordable rent. Many of them are under the age of 50.

We know the causes of our housing crisis. For too long, housing regulations incentivized speculation, investors and house flippers. Prices are inflated by money laundering and foreign buyers. Our governments haven’t taken enough action to change outdated zoning rules, mortgage regulations, or how they tax housing and land wealth.

But change is possible. 

Everyone knows the high cost of living is a major concern for younger Canadians. Political parties are looking for ideas about how to solve these problems – and Gen Squeeze has answers!

If you send a letter, alongside other concerned Canadians, we could put solutions to the housing crisis at the centre of each party’s election platform. This means whoever wins is accountable to their promise.

Send a letter to federal parties right now, calling on them to make the following four commitments to solve Canada’s housing problem.  

If we want to restore housing affordability, we need to think big picture. I support a BC #TaxShift #bcpoli
