Did you know?

Housing is an essential need. However, in Greater Montreal, many people live in inadequate housing or housing they can't afford.

No family should spend more than 30% of its household income on rent. But when you work for minimum wage, it's impossible not to exceed this ratio. And since rent and bills have to be paid first, other essential needs such as food and clothing get cut.
