Rent and home ownership rates are skyrocketing, while wages are not keeping pace. Far too often, families struggle to make ends meet.
At Habitat for Humanity, we know that a family should never have to spend more than 30 percent of their income on a home.
But consider that today 1 in 5 Canadians are living in housing that is unsafe or unaffordable.
Safe homes. Nutritious food on the table. Health care. Access to good schools. Reliable transportation. Which would you choose?
Your home shouldn’t cost you anywhere near half your paycheck. Home shouldn’t cost you your health. Home shouldn’t cost you your kids’ education.
When the cost of home is your family’s future, the cost is too high. When the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford.
We know the complexities that surround the cost of home. We also know the struggle, stress and pain of far too many families in our communities. And we know that those with the fewest resources are forced to make the hardest choices.
We have to take a stand and declare our commitment to ensure that no family has to pay more than half of their paycheck to cover the cost of home.
