Healthy Homes - Habitation saine

 
 
Every person deserves affordable, livable housing. In many low income neighbourhoods, tenants live with mold, pests, broken elevators, and other challenges because landlords will not do the repairs needed. ACORN Canada members fight for landlord licensing, building inspections, and stronger enforcement of maintenance rules and by-laws.

Surrey Healthy Homes Campaign Report

Local Surrey professors Steve Dooley and John Rose were contracted by ACORN Canada as private consultants to do research about the living conditions tenants face in Surrey, through an unbiased lens.  The following report lays out the research that they compiled at focus groups with Surrey tenants in late 2012, as a part of ACORN Canada's Healthy Homes Project that was funded by Vancouver Community Foundation.

Radio-Canada: Acorn ouvrira un centre à Gatineau

Gatineau

L'organisme Acorn, dont la mission est de venir en aide aux familles en situation précaire, ouvrira, vendredi, une succursale à Gatineau. Il s'agit d'une première percée de l'organisme au Québec.

Après Ottawa, Toronto et Vancouver, Acorn inaugurera un bureau dans le secteur de Hull. Les responsables souhaitent ainsi aménager un local dans l'un des quartiers les plus défavorisés de la ville.
