Trudeau government gives $10 million to race-based housing


The Trudeau government has announced it is giving millions of taxpayer dollars to help 200 black families in the Greater Toronto Area pay for their first home.


“This investment builds on previous announcements by the Government of Canada to support Black Canadians in achieving their dream of homeownership,” read an announcement.


The program will provide $10 million in taxpayer money to the BlackNorth Homeownership Bridge Program along with a “joint contribution of $40 million with Habitat for Humanity to create 200 additional homeownership opportunities for Black Canadians, as part of a recently announced $50 million investment through the National Housing Co-Investment Fund to support Black Canadian renters.”


“Different Canadians face unique challenges, especially when it comes to finding a safe and affordable place to call home,” said federal minister of housing and diversity and inclusion Ahmed Hussen.


“Our government continues to support Black Canadians in accessing equitable housing opportunities. This funding will help them to become homeowners and break the cycle of core housing need.”
