Wellesley Institute 2011 federal pre-budget submission: Invest in homes and innovation / equity

The Wellesley Institute 2011 federal pre-budget submission¬†offers two major recommendations to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance as it starts consultations for the 2011 federal budget. First, a down payment on a 10-year national housing plan as set out in detail in the Wellesley Institute’s Precarious Housing in Canada report (the federal government is set to make drastic cuts in affordable housing investments, and our recommendation calls for $1 billion in the coming year – which would maintain federal housing investments at the same level as 2009). Second, a $350 million investment in a¬†national social innovation and equity strategy.
