Housing insecurity during childhood may lead to:
– Chronic health conditions
– Barriers to education
– Food insecurity
1/7 Canadians (almost 5 million) live in poverty.
1 in 5 households experience serious housing affordability issues, (spending 50% of low-income on rent) increasing the risk of homelessness.
3 million households are living in precariously housed (unaffordable, below standards, and/or overcrowded) conditions.
Housing is a Human Right.
