Ottawa REALTORS® Urge Municipal Leaders to Address Senior Housing Issues
The findings in newly released surveys of Ottawa residents and REALTORS® affirm the urgent need for municipal policies to address the increasing demand for a range of affordable and attainable housing options for the elderly residents of our City within the next five years. The Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) recently collaborated with the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and Nanos Research to conduct this public research. In addition to views on the current housing market’s challenges, the surveys also sought to assess the necessity of creating additional housing options for seniors.
REALTORS Care® Foundation Grants
Every year, OREB Members raise funds for the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation to help shelter-related charities in the Ottawa area.
