unaffordable_rent_gi_top

Over the past week, there has been an influx of informative media coverage regarding the issue of rental housing. From liveability concerns on CTV to a proposed Student Housing Complex discussed on CJOB, there is a lot of information for review.  I greatly encourage you to examine the latest media coverage on this challenging issue!
