Understanding the rental housing crisis and solutions to end it
The current rental landscape is changing, and changing fast. Highlighting data on rental housing from a variety of sources, the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton is publishing a series of bulletins to bring attention to Hamilton’s renters, the buildings they live in, the rents they pay, and the difficulties they face in this challenging housing market.
For additional context, also see the SPRC’s 2018 report
