From Arif Virani  MP for Parkdale-High Park Community Newsletter


“On November 22, our government announced Canada’s first ever National Housing Strategy (NHS).  As a representative for our community and for our city, I have fought hard for a comprehensive strategy to address the issues of affordable housing and eradicating homelessness. The NHS will create 10,000 new housing units; repair 300,000 existing units; and protect 385,000 households from losing an affordable place to live.  Most importantly, the NHS will entrench housing as a human right in law”.

The essential mission of this coop is to provide appropriate and accessible housing for the persons and families who are members.

The concept appropriate housing will be understood as units with rooms of dimensions that allow people to live there, without suffering mental anguish for overcrowding and with the number of rooms necessary according to the number of persons in the family group.

The concept accessible will be understood as the payment of rent according to income of the family or person.

The Coop is for low and middle-income families and individuals. This fundamental principle will be considered at all times in the selection of members, and the distribution of subsidies when possible.

The middle-income will be considered as the average salary table correspondent to each year.

And the low income will be considered according to LICO, Low Income Cut Off table used by the Federal Government to calculates income over or under the poverty line.
