What can governments do to safeguard Canada’s existing supply of affordable co-op and non-profit housing?
- Act together now to maintain rent-geared-to-income assistance for 200,000 low-income Canadian households in co-operative and non-profit housing;
- Ensure that savings from expiring subsidies for low-income co-op households are re-invested in new long-term cost-shared rent supplement programs, to be delivered by provinces and territories (and by municipalities in Ontario).
- Ensure that households now receiving federal RGI housing assistance continue to be eligible for assistance under the new rental assistance programs; and
- Keep this funding stream separate from the Investment in Affordable Housing Program.
