A Roundtable Discussion on Housing Affordability: Should government be more or less involved?

Surging home prices. Fast-rising rents. Uncontrollable bidding wars. These all describe Canada’s hot real estate markets and prompted sweeping action by governments to support housing affordability.

First, there was the foreign buyers tax in British Columbia. Then, the Ontario Government announced its Fair Housing Plan to make housing more accessible for homebuyers and renters. The Federal Government also introduced measures to increase affordable housing investments across Canada with more announcements expected soon.

Should Government be more or less involved when it comes to affordable housing? What is the role of the private sector? What needs to happen moving forward to ensure Canadians have access and options for affordable housing? Join us as our guest panel explores these questions and others during our Roundtable discussion.
