We want social housing and affordable housing in Chinatown.

To ensure that the neighbourhood remains affordable for working people and seniors, including long-standing residents, the community needs:housing

  • New permanent affordable social housing for low-income people, including people with and without fixed incomes. The number of social housing units in the neighbourhood should match the number of non-social housing units.
  • New permanent, purpose-built rental housing that is affordable for working-class families and independent seniors. All non-social housing units in the neighbourhood should meet these criteria.
  • As much housing as possible to be owned and operated by the government, so as to maintain permanent affordability and provide the most public benefit.
