An Insider’s View of Housing Affordability


  • Scott Butler, President, Highstreet Ventures
  • Benjamin Dachis, Director of Public Affairs, CD Howe Institute
  • Lyndon Thomas, Director, LTA Consultants

The costs to deliver housing appears to be increasing. At the same time, housing affordability is an increasingly important issue to both the general public and the various levels of government. Why does the cost to create housing continue to rise even though affordable and attainable housing is a stated objective for many municipalities and other levels of government? The issue is complex and there are many reasons for why we are where we are. Join Scott, Benjamin and Lyndon for a frank discussion that will provide insights into why the costs to deliver housing are the way that they are, where this is going, what can be done and how people can build in the current climate.
