Background: The city of Ottawa has announced 4 strategic priorities that they would like to make improvements on to allow for a better future of young adults in the next 10 years. We are aiming to address the cities priority of affordability. More specifically, increasing housing supply and support intensification of innovative housing models.


Objective(s): The city of Ottawa has announced 4 strategic priorities that they would like to make improvements on to allow for a better future of young adults in the next 10 years.


Approach: In this project, we proposed a very novel solution to the housing crisis, Alternative housing. It has not yet been popularized in Ottawa. Among the people we surveyed (young adults aged between 18-30) very few people are aware of these alternative models. We want to use these alternative models specifically in the rental market as a steppingstone for young adults to save and break into the housing market.


Potential for Impact: The findings from the study will aid in the development of future affordable housing strategies. In the long term, we might be able to create opportunities enabling young adults to save and to break into the housing market.
