Hunger and affordable housing issues go hand-in-hand for Canadians with low incomes. But we shouldn’t have to choose between affording food and paying rent!

CANADA HOMELESSRising housing costs often leave families without enough income to cover necessities like food, driving them to food banks for the most basic form of assistance.

A quarter of all Canadians spend more than 30% of their income on housing, pushing these costs of out of the threshold of affordability.

Tell the government that Canadians need affordable housing!

Over the past 15 years, federal support for affordable housing has plummeted. Canada’s population is growing, but affordable housing just isn’t keeping up. As the first of the month approaches, thousands of Canadians are forced to make the agonizing choice between paying for rent and buying food.

High housing costs are the number one reason why food banks are busier than ever.

Sign the petition urging the government to invest in the health and well-being of Canadians by supporting affordable housing.
