Housing

Every family should have a safe and stable place to live.

Building affordable housing is good for families, breathes new life into our communities and strengthens our local economy.

  • The last time they were in government, Brian Pallister and his Conservatives refused to build any social housing at all. Because we believe in a Manitoba where nobody is left behind, our NDP government is investing over $137 million to develop 500 more social housing and 500 more affordable rental units on top of the 3,000 units that were completed last year.

  • We’re keeping life affordable for families with stronger rent protections, including protecting more renters from large rent increases and restricting condo conversions. Rent increase guidelines give families stability and we are committed to keeping them in place.

  • We are helping to keep homeownership affordable by providing families with up to $700 in education property tax relief every year. Seniors can now receive a rebate of up to $1,570—for many seniors, that effectively eliminates their school property tax.

We know there’s more work to do, but our NDP government is committed to building safe and affordable housing for every family who needs it.
