Bringing Affordability to the Suburbs

It’s no secret that the cost of housing in the West Island and elsewhere is skyrocketing, affecting groups such as seniors looking to downsize, first-time homebuyers, and families. If we want to maintain and retain our population, action must be taken at the municipal level to ensure a balanced housing system with something to offer everyone.
Bringing Affordability to the Suburbs aimed to empower elected officials to make informed decisions regarding housing policy and mobilize community members to advocate for affordable housing!
Participants had the chance to…
  • Discover creative solutions to local housing needs
  • Network with diverse housing actors and potential collaborators
