Endorsement Quote: "We need to address growing homelessness and impoverishment in our neighbourhoods and in our city. No amount of deregulation, tax cuts, fee reductions, or subsidies for developers will adequately address the issue. They will continue to make it worse. We must move beyond market solutions and consider more public options, including the possibility of a municipally run developer who can help us realize returns on our capital investments into non-market housing. Elders who wish to age in their community should have suitable and affordable options to do so; young adults should not have to leave their community when leaving their parental home if they do not want to. Moreover, no one should be homeless in any city, nevermind a winter city, and certainly not in the capital of one of the richest countries in the world."
|1. Stop the Loss||✔️Tenants Protections||✔️Housing Acquisition: "Changes to zoning and other regulatory tools that shape and facilitate private sector investments in development will not solve the housing crisis. The city must take an active role in ensuring that community planning and affordable housing is a priority by directly investing in the creation of non-market housing."|
|2. Create More||✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "We need a higher set-aside rate for inclusionary zoning of rentals than the current target range of between 0% and 10%. Inclusionary zoning is not a sufficient solution to the housing crisis, but we should be ambitious in how many rental units in a new building must be offered as affordable."||✔️Increased Budget|
|3. Preserve the Quality||✔️Landlord Licensing||✔️Ombudsperson|
