Resolutions from municipal governments, unions and community organizations will help build and apply pressure on the provincial government, for action on Ontario’s housing crisis.
These sample resolutions can be printed and used as is (8.5 x 14 paper), or changed according to need.
Municipal governments have a key interest in a provincial housing program. Housing costs have been downloaded onto municipal budgets, along with costs for social assistance. These programs are the responsibility of the provincial government, who should provide full funding for adequate programs.
As organizations of working people, unions have a key interest in a provincial housing program. Workers in all areas and economic sectors are affected by high housing costs and low supply of affordable housing. A provincial program to build 200,000 units of publicly owned affordable housing would provide immediate relief to working class families and communities, and create thousands of jobs.
Community organization resolution
Indigenous people, students and youth, seniors, racialized communities, immigrants, women, LGBTQ people, tenants, environmental groups. High costs and lack of affordable housing affect many, many different communities, sometimes in specific ways. All of us have a key interest in a provincial housing program.
