St. Catharines , ON, October 1, 2019 - Recognizing the importance of the upcoming Federal Election on October 21, 2019, the Niagara Association of REALTORS® conducted a survey of candidates running in the Niagara Region on their approach to the vital ongoing issue of homeownership in Niagara.
As REALTORS®, the Members of the Niagara Association of REALTORS® witness ﬁrst-hand the anxiety Canadians feel as they look to enter the housing market and the challenges they face when it comes to buying a home. The 2019 Federal Election is our moment to advocate for the policies and solutions we know will make a real diﬀerence for Niagara residents, both present and future.
The main issues in the survey included the Home Buyers Tax Credit, the recently implemented mortgage “stress test”, and how candidates would work with all levels of government to ensure a more robust and comprehensive approach to homeownership in the Niagara Region.
