Making Housing Affordable

The Liberal Party of Canada is committed to ensuring that all Canadians, including young Canadians, have a safe, accessible and affordable place to call home. As of September 2019, young and middle-class Canadians have access to the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive to take their first step towards ownership by reducing their monthly mortgage payments without increasing the amount of a down payment. We have also pledged to make the rental market more accessible for Canadians, by building 42,500 new rental units across Canada, especially in areas where rental housing is limited.
