1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections: "I agree with creating policies to include: landlords having to receive all city permits before providing notice to tenants of renoviction/demoviction; educating with information on tenants’ legal rights to compensation; and ensure temporarily displaced tenants during renovations or demolitions are re-housed at the same rate of their present rent." ✔️Housing Acquisition: "I support the action of creating a non-profit housing acquisition strategy to reduce the loss of aging housing stock being sold and converted to higher priced housing, and enable non-profit housing providers the time and ability to quickly acquire rental housing."
2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "I support a policy for new developments to ensure up to 30% of units for affordable housing through a phased in approach. It is important that a portion of units would be financially accessible to households with incomes under $24K/yr." ✔️Increased Budget"I support doubling the City’s current commitment of housing 500 households through rent subsidies and the creation of non-profit units. We need to minimize our social housing registry waitlist by finding homes for all families in Ottawa."
3. Preserve the Quality ❌Landlord Licensing: "I am not 100% that a policy to require landlords to register with the City would be the best option. I agree it is important to hold rental property owners to better maintenance standards and to build capacity to oversee and ensure standards for health and safety be maintained, but I am not sure a licensing would be the best way to ensure standards are met." ✔️Ombudsperson: "I agree with the action to assign an independent Housing Ombudsperson to implement the right to housing in line with the federal commitment to housing as a human right. I think it would be good for them to monitor progress, review violations, and provide City Council with recommendations to fulfill our city’s human rights obligations. We would have to ensure that the Ombudsman is equipped to ensure that our city succeeds, and residents are supported."
