OTTAWA -- An estimated 1.5 million needy households in Canada could have access to suitable, affordable housing for the cost of slightly more than $1 a day for every household in the country, a new report says.Source. Do you think it would kill you to pay another $1.10 a day in taxes? Me neither.
The price tag to eliminate Canada's "housing affordability gap" was a key finding in the report, which said single-parent families, the unemployed, the elderly, immigrants and aboriginals were being hardest hit by the lack of suitable housing.
The report, released Thursday, was prepared for the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada and based on an analysis of 2006 data collected by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.
