ਬਰੈਂਪਟਨ ਵਿੱਚ ਅਸੁਰੱਖਿਅਤਅਤੇ ਸਸਤੇ ਵਿਦਿਆਰਥੀ ਹਾਊਸਿੰਗ ਦੀ ਸਮੱਸਿਆ

The Greater Toronto Area, specifically Brampton, attracts thousands of international students every academic term. However, housing these students is a challenge, as safe and affordable housing options in the city are limited. Students, who pay thousands of dollars in tuition fees to Canadian educational institutions, try to cut costs by living in cramped, unsafe and shared housing. RED FM Host Daksh Panwar speaks with Brampton City Councillor Jeff Bowman to know about the steps the city is taking to ensure safe housing for students. Councillors Bowman also talks about residents’ responsibility with regard to illegal construction in their neighborhood and the responsibility of educational institutes to provide safe and affordable housing for students.
