Sustaining Ontario's Subsidized Housing by Supporting Non-Profit Organizations
Sustaining Ontario's Subsidized Housing by Supporting Non-Profit Organizations examines the relationship between non-profit organizations and social housing in Toronto. The paper shows that the focus of funding affordable housing has shifted. By concentrating on new developments to reduce the shortage of affordable housing in Ontario cities, we are no longer able to address the long-term viability of existing projects. As a result, existing developments run into financial difficulty putting them at risk of bankruptcy, a challenge for non-profit providers.
The CPRN/SHSC Housing Research Internship and Scholar Program is funded by SHSC and run by CPRN. The program's overall aim is to develop Canada's housing research and policy capacity by attracting and retaining the best and the brightest in the housing sector. The program is an intensive four-month policy research training experience that results in the publication of original housing policy research. For information on SHSC, go to www.shscorp.ca.
