Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA) - Housing Affordability: Why are new policy directions important for public health?

Topics: Equity, Practices and Procedures Location: General, Canada

We are hearing much about a national housing strategy, Ontario’s long-term strategy, more funding for affordable housing, supportive housing, and homelessness, and new municipal and LHIN initiatives. Ontario communities face ongoing pressures of homelessness, poverty, and housing-related health inequalities. What’s changing, what’s constant, and where do recent announcements fit?

This webinar will provide information on today’s housing frameworks and programs for those who are aware about housing affordability from a public health and social determinants perspective and want to learn about policies that influence housing affordability.

Learning objectives:

  1. Review the relation of housing affordability to health, poverty, social inequalities, and market factors.
  2. Understand the main policy/program frameworks in affordable housing, the roles of governments and community organizations, and how these are evolving.
  3. Be informed about new affordable housing strategy and program initiatives, their context and potential significance.
