To mark National Housing Day on Nov. 22, the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO), which represents Registered Nurses (RNs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and nursing students is encouraging Ontarians to submit an online petition calling on the Prime Minister of Canada and the Premier of Ontario to make more investments in affordable housing. RNAO says the recent steps Ontario has taken to define homelessness and set a target to end it within 10 years are welcome. However, need is outpacing resources, which is why nurses are calling for dedicated investment. For information, please visit the online petition.
