Final Report of the RentSafe Research on Equity-focused Intersectoral Practice (EquIP) for Housing and Health Equity in Owen Sound, Ontario
Housing is considered to be a core social determinant of health (SDH) and intersects with a number of other SDH — including food insecurity and inadequate income — to create population health inequities.
CPCHE is leading an ambitious initiative to address unhealthy housing conditions affecting tenants living on low income in both urban and rural communities in Ontario.
In November 2017, RentSafe tenant advocates from three rural communities in Ontario came together to discuss shared concerns about housing conditions and what is needed to ensure healthy homes for all.
This report summarizes the findings of RentSafe baseline research over the past three years and offers recommendations for action to improve intersectoral action and capacity to ensure healthy housing conditions for all people of Ontario.
