Proclamation - National Housing Day, November 22, 2020

Whereas the availability of safe, affordable and appropriate housing in Northumberland County is insufficient to meet the needs of the community; and

Whereas the COVID-19 pandemic has brought further awareness of the need for safe and affordable housing options for all residents in Northumberland; and

Whereas the County recognizes and embraces its integral role as the housing and homelessness systems planner; and

Whereas November 22 is recognized as National Housing Day across Canada where communities look to raise awareness about the importance of permanent, safe, appropriate and affordable housing in their local communities; and

Now Therefore Be It Resolved that I, Warden Bob Sanderson, do hereby proclaim November 22, 2020 as Housing Awareness Day in the Northumberland County.”

Robert Sanderson, Warden
