Mindful Habitats for Millennials
Millennials and the Canadian Housing Market
a four-part series
Canada’s current housing crisis affects a broad spectrum of the population and engages supply, affordability, tenure, and tenancy. To better explore the issues at play, this series focuses on millennials as a specific demographic group, and on a particular segment of the housing market, namely housing for purchase. The goal of this series is to explore (and question) the status quo by fostering a dialogue between millennials (those born between the early 1980s and the late ‘90s) and an array of housing experts, including urban historians, developers, real estate professionals, builders, policy makers, financing specialists, environmental experts, and socio-cultural activists. This dialogue is intended to explore opportunities to broaden the repository of existing housing and homeownership options by identifying limitations and determining what interventions may be necessary and/or feasible given the systems under which the housing market operates in Canada.
The series is jointly organized and sponsored by:
