What Impact will the 2019 Federal Budget have on Canada’s Housing Market?
I’ve written a blog post about what the recent federal budget means for Canada’s housing market.

-The budget contains several initiatives designed to make it easier for households of modest means to become homeowners.
-Such initiatives are often framed as being win-win propositions, while their unintended consequences are rarely discussed.
