To provide long-term funding for affordable housing, the provincial government signed a 10-year, $300-million agreement with the federal government earlier this year to implement a strategy called A Home for Everyone.

The strategy proposes the construction of 922 units for individuals, families and seniors in need of housing as well as “300 housing options” for the homeless by 2029.

However, advocates such as Shelby MacIntyre, who works with the Fredericton John Howard Society, says that the affordable housing outlined in the plan is not being built fast enough.
