Councillor Hubley Supports Selling Ottawa Community Housing Properties


Press Release 

Friday April 19, 2013

Kanata – Councillor Allan Hubley of Kanata South fully supports the idea of Ottawa Community Housing selling properties to fund repairs to existing units.

“The City of Ottawa cannot handle the buildings they have now and should not build anymore, because it would leave future taxpayers with hefty bills.”

Since Councillor Hubley’s been elected, he has consistently advocated for the City of Ottawa to get out of affordable housing, and instead explore providing rent supplements to residents. 

Ottawa Community Housing currently provides nearly 15,000 units, which house about 32,000 people.  As of the end of 2011, the corporation reported a long-term debt of $256,382,271 dollars in their financial statements.
