Discusses the trends in low-cost housing provision in Canada, Britain and the US touching on the instruments for financing low-cost housing provision and developing the politics of low-cost housing. Concludes with the suggestions: that housing organizations in Canada adopt new financing mechanisms for low-cost housing provision; that they enhance linkages with other organizations; and that they develop methods of work that place a priority on empowering residents. It further suggests that strategies attempt to link low-cost housing with other interests in order to broaden its political constituency.

Compares hard data on the economy, health and crime to polling information on how Canadians perceive they are faring in these three areas. Found that Canadians have a little more spending money in their pockets and more confidence in their job security, but they are less satisfied with the ability of their incomes to meet their basic needs – and increasingly anxious about Canada’s health and social safety nets.
