The NDP called the Liberal housing strategy “smoke and mirrors.”
“More and more Canadians find themselves unable to afford a home and the pandemic has made things even worse. Today’s report confirms that the Liberals are failing Canadians on housing while patting themselves on the back for a job well done,” New Democrat housing critic Jenny Kwan said in a release.
Kwan has criticized the National Housing Co-Investment Fund for failing to help provinces outside of Ontario.
Data she obtained last fall showed nearly 74 per cent of the financing for loans and grants has gone to Ontario projects from its inception in May 2018 to June 2020.
