The Canadian Dream of Home Ownership in a Time of Eroding Affordability: A Plan for Keeping the Dream Within Reach for Future Generations
Eight-in-ten Ontarians consistently say that home ownership is the Canadian Dream; home ownership is important and it gives them a sense of pride. Research has shown that home ownership leads to stronger communities, happier and healthier families and higher grades for school children. Ontario’s economic growth depends on a strong and vibrant real estate market. Yet in today’s real estate market, more and more millennials and young families are struggling to realize the dream of home ownership. Escalating home prices and dwindling housing options are pushing buyers out of the market, forcing families to delay purchases and threatening an important part of Canada’s fabric.
Join us to hear from the CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association, Tim Hudak, on how he and fellow real estate leaders are working to keep home ownership within reach for future generations. You’ll hear about the important role of strong advocacy on issues that otherwise might be overlooked by policy makers. And you’ll hear about OREA’s efforts to make home affordability a top issue for all Parties in the upcoming provincial election.
Join us at The National Club in Toronto on October 31, 2017 as we also recognize the 2017 recipients of the John E Lowes and Toronto Insurance Conference Scholarships. It is a great opportunity to celebrate, network and learn.
Proceeds of the breakfast seminar will go to the John E. Lowes Insurance Education Fund. The fund awards financial assistance to students completing a post-secondary education, including property and casualty insurance studies. Please visit our website for more information on the John E.
