Alex Ruff, Member of Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound is bringing together a Housing Task Force meeting with hopes of bringing stakeholders together to discuss challenges regarding the housing crisis.
Ruff says that, “As has been highlighted across the region on more than one occasion, we have a housing/rental challenge. I’ve been impressed by some of the ingenuity shown by individual municipalities in trying to solve some of the challenges; however, it’s evident that this challenge transcends all levels of government, the private sector, and not-for-profit communities. Therefore, a collaborative approach is required.”
Ruff is hosting a meeting of all stakeholders on Thursday, September 1st from 1:00-3:00 p.m. to share ideas, clearly identify some of the key challenges and, more importantly, recommend short to mid-term solutions.
“The meeting will take place at the Sydenham Campus in the gymnasium, located at 1130 8th Street East, in Owen Sound. Participants may also attend virtually. Please e-mail my office at Alex.Ruff@parl.gc.ca for registration information,” says Ruff.
