We need your help.
Ottawa will be receiving a mere $845,000 increase, or just 0.4% of the Province’s budget commitment of $202 million dollars. Toronto will be receiving 60 times as much increased funding as Ottawa. Yet, we are the second largest city in Ontario.
Over 2000 people stay in an emergency shelter in Ottawa every night. Our family shelter system is more than 350% over capacity and we now have a waiting list to access emergency shelter, let alone housing.
