Ottawa declared an affordable housing and homelessness emergency in January, and the situation has worsened since COVID-19 shutdown large parts of the economy. Many thousands of households can't afford to pay the rent, and are at risk of eviction.

Mayor Jim Watson is tabling his draft 2021 Budget for the City on November 4th, and we need to unite to stress to him how critical investments are needed to build more affordable housing near rapid transit.

Eighty-five organizations have written to the Mayor, and City Councillors, to urge them to put $20 million in the budget for affordable housing near rapid transit. We need individuals to call the Mayor and take additional action to win these important investments. Join us to learn more, and help us win this important improvement.
