Affordable Cost of Living

Affordable Housing

In Ontario the middle class is almost extinct. Many individuals work multiple jobs just to afford housing rentals which has skyrocketed. Often individuals and families pay more than 1/2 their income just to rent. I am suggesting tiny home communities be built to assist new graduates, seniors, and low income individuals and families have safe affordable housing. Several cities in the USA have taken this initiative and it works! Ontario could also consider using abandoned warehouses, factories and utilize space in shopping malls where the business tenancy is low to build affordable apartments/condos. Affordable condos have been built in low tenancy malls in the US and have been successful.
