For decades, Ontario has been a province where if you worked hard and played by the rules you could find a great job, raise a family, and buy a home. But thanks to skyrocketing real estate prices, the prospect of owning a home is disappearing for an entire generation.
Ontario REALTORS® are calling on all political parties and candidates running in the election to prioritize housing policies that will ensure all Ontarians have a fair shot at the Canadian Dream of home ownership.
Ontario needs to build 1.2 million homes to solve the supply shortage and 1.5 million homes if we want to keep pace with population growth. To address the crisis, Ontario must:
• Provide more help for first-time home buyers
• Build more homes
• Make home ownership more affordable
• Protect consumers Level the housing playing field
