Affordable and accessible housing remains an issue in the Territory and the Yukon Liberals will take crucial steps to address the initial purchase requirements and ongoing costs associated with home ownership through enhanced low income housing options across the Territory.
A Yukon Liberal government will:
- implement a community-based housing retrofit program to upgrade existing housing stock, improve energy efficiency and stimulate local Yukon businesses;
- modernize the Government’s approach to the provision of staff and social housing and collaborate with the private sector to develop strategies for program delivery which support community economic growth;
- work with communities to create available developed land banks to keep land prices affordable, and
- prioritize federal funding towards the creation of affordable housing.
