Something pretty exciting is launching in Ontario this month: the Housing Opens Doors Campaign!
Can you imagine the positive change that affordable housing can make in people’s lives? Good housing leads to good health, stable housing leads to success in school and jobs. Safe and secure housing leads to a higher quality of life at all ages. Better housing leads to a better Ontario.
Housing Opens Doors is a multi-year campaign to make affordable housing a priority for Ontario. Led by the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association, the campaing has many supporters, including housing providers and tenants, organizations serving the public good, corporate sponsors and concerned people like you.
Here is how you can participate:
Step one: go to the campaign website (www.housingopensdoors.ca) and ring the bell (then go to another computer and ring it again!)
Step two: come to the Byward Market on Saturday May 25 and ring the bells on our real live doors! Bring tenants & members, bring clients, bring your stories and bring a loud voice. We want to show the whole city and the whole province that housing really does open doors.
Step three: Help us spread the word by downloading posters, adding the campaign banner to your e-mail and website, and sharing the campaign through your social media networks: www.onpha.on.ca/content/HousingOpensDoors/digitalToolkit/
