Is the province’s new housing plan something that will help ease the need for affordable housing in Fort Erie?
Ashley Chiarello is the health promoter for Bridges Community Health Centre and also works with the Niagara Poverty Reduction Network (NPRN), which supplies funding for initiatives to alleviate poverty in neighbourhoods across the region. She is also a member of the Town of Fort Erie’s affordable housing committee. She thinks the province’s More Homes, More Choice: Ontario’s Housing Supply Action Plan isn’t specific enough.
“What I see from the announcement is that it is encouraging development,” Chiarello said.
