Defend Social Housing - ACORN Canada

Defend Social Housing

Posted May 24, 2012

rallyThere’s an affordable and livable housing crisis in Canada.

For years now, ACORN members from coast to coast have fought for housing that is clean and safe.

Part of the solution must be public housing – supported by federal, provincial, and municipal governments. Right now there are 982,000 families facing core housing need. The private sector can not provide what they need.

In the midst of this crisis, the Harper government is not only failing to make badly needed investments in public housing; they’re also on the verge of letting tens of thousands more units become unaffordable. In the last six years, subsidies for 16,500 units of housing have disappeared.

Between now and 2015, 72,000 more could become unaffordable.

ACORN members are joining individuals and organizations across the country, including the Red Tent campaign, to demand continued support for the public housing we have, as well as investment in the housing we need.

In Toronto? Come to a rally at Conservative MP Roxanne James’ office in Scarborough Center, 1450 Midland Ave (at Lawrence). This Saturday, May 26 at 2 PM 

Get more information from a local ACORN office.
