Interest rate cuts won't fix Canada's housing affordability crisis

Despite recent interest rate cuts, Canada's housing affordability crisis remains unresolved. Lower rates were expected to make mortgages more accessible, but they haven't significantly reduced housing costs. This is because high demand and limited supply continue to drive prices up. 

Building new homes is essential to addressing the affordability issue. Experts argue that increasing the housing supply is the only long-term solution. Without more homes, even low-interest rates won't make housing affordable for many Canadians.

Additionally, other factors such as rising construction costs and regulatory barriers also hinder affordability. Addressing these challenges is crucial for improving the housing market.

In conclusion, while interest rate cuts can provide temporary relief, they are not a cure-all for Canada's housing affordability crisis. Comprehensive measures, including boosting housing supply and addressing construction challenges, are necessary for a lasting solution.
