Housing and homelessness

  • Stop the loss of affordable housing by preserving existing affordable rentals with the creation of a Housing Acquisition Fund. This will enable the city to purchase rental properties and rooming houses when they go on the market and sell them to housing non-profits, immediately adding to our stock of affordable properties. 
  • Create a Housing Office tasked with identifying opportunities to create more non-profit and affordable housing, as well as working with partners to identify gaps in the network and provide solutions.
  • Advocate for the province to invest more deeply in the wraparound supports needed in Ottawa Community Housing buildings – this is critical to ensuring tenants are safe and well cared for.
  • Protect tenants from losing their housing by creating proactive renoviction and demoviction by-laws.
  • Reduce the costs of new housing and promote walkable, 15 minute neighbourhoods by eliminating parking minimums for new builds.
