What the NDP would do for our industryCanadian Contractor
The NDP has focused on energy savings and social housing
The NDP has had little to say about the homebuilding and renovation industry directly except to address energy savings and social housing:
*Invest in provincial, territorial and municipal home energy programs to retrofit 50,000 homes and 15,000 apartment units to lower energy bills ($200 million over 4 years).
*Tax breaks to kick-start the construction of 10,000 new affordable rental units, both in the private sector and with social housing, and renewal of funding agreements for co-operative housing across the country to address housing affordability.
*Work with provinces to create a ‘new fund’ to help Canadians retrofit their residences and thus retain value in existing homes.What
