Q4 - Will you commit to investing in energy efficient housing for lower income communities, and ensuring that the costs of retrofits are not passed down to tenants?

Laura Shantz

Yes. When it comes to housing, all new housing should be energy efficient. This is especially important when it comes to affordable housing as lower income residents often struggle to afford life's essentials: to put it simply, paying more for heating and cooling means less money to spend on food. I would like to see retrofit programs to support low income tenants and the owners of older, more affordable apartment buildings to support upgrades to ensure that the ongoing energy costs for tenants and property owners are as low as possible.

Alex Osorio

Yes. Lower income communities deserve to live in a home with great savings just like anyone else.

Julie Fiala

Yes.

Patrick Auguste

Oui. Il faut développer à la Ville, un plan de financement de rénovation des logements anciens afin de La Ville doit être plus pro active en donnant un appui aux familles les moins fortunées afin de les aider à réaliser ces rénovations.                                                                       

Cela doit être fait en transparence et avec des critères précis. Soit un plan global et détails afin d’informer et de mobiliser l’ensemble de la population avec le concept de Ville verte !

Stéphanie Plante

Yes, I support more projects like the Better Homes Ottawa project to retrofit housing, and there needs to be a focus on energy efficient housing for lower income communities. I support expanding projects like the Better Homes Ottawa, and commit to supporting policy solutions that will ensure the costs are not passed onto tenants. I will champion the opportunity to help tenants save energy costs by retrofitting housing.

Hicham Boutaleb

Absolutely.

Kim Leclerc

Oui. Même si elle n'égalera pas l'efficacité des meilleures nouvelles constructions, l'amélioration de la performance énergétique des logements réduira également la facture de logement des résidents. 

En outre, la modernisation des logements est très importante pour éviter leur destruction à un moment où le parc immobilier est critique dans la ville d'Ottawa.
