Loss of Subsidized Housing
"The ongoing expiry of social housing operating agreements is becoming a more prominent issue across Canada.

This is a crisis for the many households who cannot afford market rents and rely on subsidized housing." read more about the loss of subsidized housing at Fast Facts by Sarah Cooper at CCPA
