Good, affordable, healthy housing is a right for all Canadians, but why do so many go without? Pathways to affordable housing must be on the agenda for upcoming provincial election.
An Election 2011 All-Party Public forum on Pathways to Affordable Housing: What a Housing Benefit could do for You is happening on September 15 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Hub at Victoria Park. Moderated by Margaret Hancock, the policy panel will hear from Richard Matern and Gail Nyberg from the Daily Bread Food Bank, who will give an overview of the proposed Housing Benefit. Following this, John Stapelton will discuss the technical aspects of the proposal, and last, the Wellesley Institute’s Michael Shapcott will give some insight on the policy behind the proposal. There will be time for questions. Download the flyer below.
