Homeowners and Renters Reaching a Breaking Point: New Survey Reveals How Canadians Feel About the Housing Crisis

Despite increasing concerns, survey indicates Canadians believe action can be taken as 69% of respondents reject the idea that there isn’t much that can be done to deal with Canada’s housing problems.
Habitat for Humanity Canada has released the results of its annual national survey revealing Canadians’ attitudes towards the affordable housing crisis in Canada and sheds light on the growing barriers to housing and homeownership. For the second year in a row, lack of housing affordability ranks as a top concern for Canadians alongside inflation and access to healthcare, according to survey findings. Canadian homeowners and renters are reaching their breaking point when it comes to juggling the increased cost of living including housing.“This year’s survey revealed that Canadians continue to worry about their ability to afford housing in this country, not only for themselves, but also for their children,” said Julia Deans, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. “Despite the increasing challenges facing Canadians, the survey results indicate that Canadians believe action can be taken to tackle our housing issues.” Click here to read the media release.

“At Habitat for Humanity Canada, we share this belief. The housing crisis can be solved. And everyone has a role to play – governments, financial institutions and investors, home builders, and citizens. We must work together to build more, build faster, and invest in all parts of the housing continuum to ensure affordability for all. Strong, healthy communities start with safe and affordable housing.”
