“I want to make myself 100% clear: our housing plan does not involve touching CityHousing Hamilton’s budget, nor do we intend to change the vital role CHH plays in providing affordable housing to its 13,000 tenants. I want a Hamilton where we use all the tools at our disposal to build more truly affordable housing and deliver the wraparound supports people need to live healthy lives. I want to help our non-profit partners with the issues they face, particularly with development charges.”
