Our Letter

I am writing concerning the ongoing housing crisis in Ontario and across Canada. Home prices have increased by nearly 30% year-over-year in most markets. In one suburb, the typical home price rose nearly $74,000 in just four weeks. This is putting the dream of home ownership out of reach for many Canadians – perhaps irreversibly, unless you act now.

The crisis is resulting in even larger mortgage debts, limiting financial flexibility at a time when costs everywhere are rising. At this rate, young people who save diligently and work hard will still never be able to keep up with price appreciation. Many are already permanently locked out.

I hope that you will do everything you can to bring about positive change on this issue.

I ask that you immediately release a statement identifying the housing crisis and your intention to help solve it. Pledge to work for sustainable home price increases in your riding while pushing for transparency in the housing market and common sense laws that put hardworking Canadians — many of whom just want a home to live in — over the interests of speculators and investors.

Over the coming weeks, please adopt and advocate policies that support those values. For a list of ideas worthy of consideration, go here.

We are concerned that if nothing is done to ensure sensible home price appreciation, the Canada we love is going to disappear. We have to do something. You have to act.

I ask that you detail the specific, tangible actions you will take toward achieving this goal of sustainable home price appreciation for all Canadians. I await your answers to these urgent questions. Canadians everywhere are counting on you.
