At the provincial level, we advocate for policies that will increase the supply of housing while making homeownership more affordable. Some examples of the housing affordability measures we advocate for include: reducing tax for homeowners and increasing tax incentives for first-time home buyers. We also actively engage on legislative and regulatory matters such as advertising, licensing, education and regulatory requirements with member input.
Some recent successes include:
