Housing is a top issue among voters in this election — and the parties know it. As housing prices continue to increase in many regions across Canada, the leaders are pledging to make homes more affordable for people at all income levels.

The House hears from voters about their housing situations and housing policy experts — Paul Kershaw of the University of British Columbia, Andy Yan of Simon Fraser University and Julieta Perucca of The Shift, a housing advocacy organization — share their thoughts on what the parties are putting on the table.
