Trudeau announces construction of nearly 17k new homes, majority to be affordable housing units

Speaking in Kitchener, Ont., on Tuesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the construction of nearly 17,000 new homes to assist with the housing crisis – a majority to be affordable housing units, he added. This is part of the government’s $2 billion in spending to fix the country’s housing supply, and is part of the Liberals' "Rapid Housing Initiative" to "quickly deliver permanent housing for vulnerable people."
