The empty homes tax needs YOUR support

Mayor Kennedy Stewart kept his promise to triple the empty homes tax and this will deliver more than $32 million in funding from homes declared vacant – more than doubling 2020’s interim total of $15 million – to help build more affordable housing and fight homelessness in our city. At the same time, vacant properties are on the decline meaning more homes for locals, not speculators.

Mayor Kennedy Stewart's next step is to increase the tax again from 3 to 5 percent. This is the final push we need to end housing speculation that harms all of us.
