✔️ Theresa Kavanaugh

Endorsement Quote: "I am fully committed to using the tools at our disposal to the City of Ottawa to stop housing loss, create more affordable housing for people at low and moderate income levels, and to preserve the quality of the affordable housing currently in place."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections: "I support the implementation of a strong Anti-Displacement policy with a range of housing protections for tenants." ✔️Housing Acquisition: "I am aware of a number of smaller affordable housing projects which have used this approach in Ottawa, and would like to to see opportunities for this to increase."
2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "I believe that Ottawa needs to commit to a strong Inclusionary Zoning policy that will increase affordable rental units for low and moderate income earners in private market buildings, ease the pressure on Ottawa's supply of deep core affordable housing units, and facilitate the growth of mixed income housing city-wide." ✔️Increased Budget: "Indigenous people are more vulnerable to homelessness and housing insecurity. Indigenous housing advocates are able to identify, design and manage affordable housing models that are culturally informed and can lead to more sustainable living for Indigenous people. I support the provision of Indigenous-led housing creation, as well as the creation of mixed affordable housing that is welcoming to Indigenous people and seeks their input during development."
3. Preserve the Quality ✔️Landlord Licensing: "The City of Ottawa needs to allocate more financial and human resources to increase its capacity to implement and enforce property maintenance standards." ✔️Ombudsperson: "I support efforts to align Ottawa's affordable housing targets with national goals, increase opportunities to share best practices across the country, and to ensure national standards for the creation of affordable housing. An Ombudsman would help to ensure all of this, as well as address problems in compliance."
