GN employee housing plan unfair?
With the proposed affordable housing to be available for government of Nunavut employees, I find it outrageous for the government to forget the life-long residents of Nunavut who intend to live in the community.
Buying a condominium will encourage the employee to speculate on the housing that the Nunavut government gave them.
Myself, I have been declined twice for a mortgage. It is hard to get a start on a good way of life with a good job and no home ownership. The $15,000 assistance from the Nunavut Housing Corporation is never enough to start with.
Is the government only giving housing to the government employees and those who are receiving welfare assistance, and not to those who are educated and working for private businesses or non-government organizations?
