We believe housing is a right, not a privilege. It cannot be treated as a commodity to be governed by market forces. All people deserve safe, affordable and accessible homes. All levels of government have a role to play in ensuring its citizens have access to a healthy and sustainable way of life in their own communities.
What we’re advocating for
We will be a voice for the tenant community, continue to build the tenant movement, and do our utmost to represent our collective needs to government. Holding them to account on their policy decisions. Below are some of the policies we’re fighting for.
