Motion To: WHEREAS the Canada-Ontario Community Housing Benefit report (ACS2020-CSS-GEN-0002) identifies the recommended proposed priority household groups that will be eligible to apply for and access the Canada-Ontario Housing Benefit during the first two-years of the program; and WHEREAS the staff report currently identifies that Year 1 funding priority will be given to single women or lone female led households with children; and WHEREAS Indigenous people in Ottawa are disproportionately overrepresented in the population of people experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity and are in need of safe, affordable housing options; and THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the report be amended to provide that Year 1 funding priority (as identified on Page 12 of the report) would be given to single women or lone female led households with children, with priority consideration for Indigenous women.
