Abe Oudshoorn on Public Housing

“[O]ur ongoing research with Syrian refugee families in London, Ont., Calgary, and Fredericton, N.B., shows that while these families are achieving strong social and economic gains, acquiring fluency, employment, and social networks, the obscene inflation in the housing market means that costs are outpacing their economic gains…Public housing is the only option that quickly and simultaneously addresses both supply and affordability issues,” writes Abe Oudshoorn in the Toronto Star.
