“The housing crisis affects everyone in Niagara but hits some harder than others,” Dr. Heritz writes in NCO Policy Brief #48. “The most vulnerable bear the brunt of the shortage of affordable housing, including Indigenous Peoples, women and children, older adults, newcomers, veterans, at-risk youth, the LGBTQ2S community and people facing mental health or addiction issues.” The brief aims to answer questions such as what issues contribute to the crisis, what is being done to increase affordable housing stock and will there be enough to meet future needs.
