Op-ed: As Canadian housing crisis rages on, is ‘financialization’ really to blame?

Addressing Canada’s housing crisis requires all-hands-on-deck. Step 1: stop chasing away the capital we’ll need to build 5.8 million new homes. 

Read my op-ed published in Toronto Star and learn more.

So, what if I told you there was a group of housing providers that manage 120,000 tenure-stable, purpose-built rental homes where more than half are affordable? And that they invested $40,000 per home in improvements over the last decade, all while meeting commitments to ESG standards? You’d have a model rental housing provider, right? Well, that’s us, my industry — Canada’s public apartment REITs.
