LAHAAG In The News

On November 3rd, 2022, LAHAAG was invited to speak with other community advocates regarding the ongoing conflict over the definition of affordable housing in Toronto.

“The change in the definition for affordable housing from market rates to income-based marked an important step forward (for) housing as a human right,” said Carly Bowie of Lakeshore Affordable Housing Advocacy and Action Group.

“When we define affordability as housing that people can afford, we begin to build a Toronto that’s for everyone, where we have a mix of incomes that make it truly sustainable and a vibrant place to be where someone like me — renting while raising two children — doesn’t have to fear displacement from the community and city my family calls home.”
