Housing for Immigrants in Ontario's Medium-Sized Cities
Housing for Immigrants in Ontario's Medium-Sized Cities, by David Wachsmuth, explores how medium-sized cities in Ontario provide affordable housing for newcomers – the challenges that immigrants, governments, housing providers and settlement agencies face, and the policies and strategies they follow for overcoming these challenges. The report examines the five medium-sized cities in the province – Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Ottawa and Windsor – that together receive four out of five new immigrants who do not settle in Toronto. As well, a series of recommendations for these and other cities are made.
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/.
