Shaping a new era
It is well known that the principle of supply and demand does not serve the collective interest. The housing crisis, which is becoming more and more glaring, is the direct result of the application of this demented doctrine which makes housing a speculative investment that only benefits a small portion of the population.
The failures of this system are no longer to be demonstrated. The sacrosanct market forces that have been leading to the exclusion of poor households for too long are now reaching the middle classes, who are swelling the ranks of the poorly housed.
At the end of a health crisis that has exacerbated inequalities and undermined solidarity, are we condemned to watch helplessly as this catastrophic scenario unfolds? Certainly not!
Cooperative housing, however perfectible it may be, can be a driving force for a social and economic revival based on the sharing of wealth, the growth of the common good and the preservation of our living environments.
While the Quebec government is reviewing its housing funding criteria, how can we make the cooperative force better known in order to meet the challenge of truly affordable housing for all households? What are our ambitions? What role can and will our movement play in this changing landscape? It is with these questions in mind that your cooperative is invited to the 2022 AGM of the Fédération de l'habitation coopérative du Québec.
