Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

  • The Trudeau Liberal government is developing new building code regulations that will require costly mandatory energy efficiency renovations which will cause Canadians to potentially shell out tens of thousands of dollars when building, selling or renovating their homes;
  • These changes will negatively impact Canadian homeowners and those looking to achieve the dream of home ownership;
  • These changes will have a devastating impact on the retirement plans of Canadian seniors;
  • These changes will have a detrimental effect on the Canadian real estate industry; and
  • The Liberals previously introduced new mortgage lending rules without proper consultations, another move which hurt Canadian homeownership and the real estate industry.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to ensure that any new building code regulations will not have undue costly implications on homeowners, and that no changes are introduced until Canadians are properly consulted.
