By Evergreen

The My Future Home Global Report - More Than Four Walls: Personal Perspectives on the Future of Housing – presents an overview of insights and aspirations shared over seven My Future Home sessions by youth, newcomers and older adults on their future housing needs .

The  insights shared throughout the seven forums show that for most, desired housing futures involve key considerations beyond the physical house, condo, and apartmentMore than Four Walls illustrates that across the spectrum of youth, newcomers, and older adultsdesired housing futures are modest in the physical sense. Individuals want affordable housing, as well as accessibility to green spaces, amenities and communityIn short, a better housing future is affordable, equitable, and supports accessibility and strong communities. Getting to a more just housing future requires more collaboration to scale and connect pockets of successful solutions across Canada.  

“We heard overwhelming agreement that housing should truly be a basic right as it is a building block for health, success, and community vibrancy.”
