Ottawa Architecture Week raises awareness about affordable housing

October 16, 2018

Ottawa Architecture Week (OAW) is an annual week-long festival exploring architecture, urbanism, art and design in Ottawa.

This year’s OAW ran in September, with the theme of ‘Affordability’. OAW explained that Canada has experienced a market-driven approach to housing, causing several problems we now face, including a lack of affordable social housing for vulnerable and low-income Canadians.
