Plight of Canadian Renters

The Canadian Rental Housing Index brings together all types of rental accommodation, including social housing, purpose-built rental, condos, houses and secondary suites in homes across all 338 federal ridings in the country.

According to the index, 40% of renter households are paying more than 30% of their before-tax income on rent and utilities, an amount widely considered to be unaffordable. Read about it here.

FoodShare Mobile Market

The FoodShare mobile food truck continues to welcome Malvern residents at their weekly markets on Wednesdays. Below is a quote and photos from a community member who frequents the food truck:

“I’m getting pretty dependent on that truck for my weekly haul — and eating healthier too — because when I hit the supermarket, i usually spend my budget on the crackers or unhealthy snack sales they have.

Last week, they had hydroponically grown tomatoes! They taste so good! And my kids are devouring those tiny little apples… they make much more sense portion-wise than the huge imported pulpy ones.”
