I heard that Ottawa is about to come to the end of many of its social housing operating agreements, and providers may not be able to sustain the affordability of their units. What will happen then?

Negotiations have been happening with social housing providers and all levels of government. At this point, it would be politically untenable to not renew these agreements for any party. While not confirmed yet, it is likely that these will be renewed.

Some progress has been made with re-investment in coops in the most recent federal budget.

The Province has recently released a new framework for housing built under Ontario’s Housing Services Act, which represents the majority of social housing in Ontario. The new framework gives municipalities and housing providers authority to negotiate new agreements that will provide long-term sustainability for housing providers and the continuation of subsidies for tenants.
