Statement on Morneau-Sousa-Tory Meeting on Housing Affordability

“Today’s meeting was a very good opportunity for all three levels of government to share and review each other’s real estate data. It is surprising and risky that we do not have a single, trusted, collective source of real estate data to help guide policy decision making. When it comes to something as important as the real estate industry and the value of your home, we need to ensure that policy decisions are being based on the facts.

I have enjoyed meeting with Premier Wynne, Minister Sousa and Mayor Tory over the last several weeks to discuss Ontario’s Realtors' ideas on affordable home ownership. I commend them for their thoughtful approach and for working with industry leaders to get the best advice on dealing with rapidly rising home prices.

It is encouraging to see this kind of effort and attention being paid to Ontario’s housing challenge, but it is critical that we do not lose sight of the underlying supply problem affecting home affordability. Ultimately, the best solution to rapidly rising home prices is increasing the supply of listings and new homes in hot markets across Ontario like the GTA.”

OREA Statement on Federal Government’s Refusal to Allow Provinces the Ability to Ban Home Growth of Cannabis

Ontario Realtors are disappointed the federal government rejected the Senate recommendation that would have allowed provinces to ban home growth of cannabis. Provinces should have the ability to protect home owners and communities from the problems associated with former grow ops. Quebec and Manitoba have committed to standing firm on this issue and the ambiguity in the legislation has opened the door to court challenges. We look forward to working with Premier-Designate Ford to address Realtor concerns and ensure we protect Ontario homes and families.

York region politicians want a new municipal land transfer tax grab on home ownership

York Region councillors are demanding new tax powers from the province, and they have their eyes set on the municipal land transfer tax (MLTT). If implemented, the tax would add over $15,000 to an average priced York Region home, impacting housing affordability for all home buyers and making the Canadian dream of home ownership less achievable for thousands of young buyers. This could set a dangerous precedent for housing affordability across the wider Greater Toronto Area and the rest of the province.
