Vote for Housing
Our housing crisis continue to intensify. In the city of Edmonton, close to 1 in 4 households are living in housing that is unaffordable which includes 38.1% of all renter households. Between 2000 and 2020, the cost of renting an apartment in Edmonton more than doubled and incomes have not kept pace (more details on why housing is so unaffordable).
What do each of the federal party platforms offer in terms of access to safe, adequate, and affordable housing?
