Listen: What are we doing? About Housing


With inflation on the rise and supply running low it’s become difficult to find a place to live in Haliburton County. For some people, that means looking at purchasing homes out of the county in order to make ends meet. 

So what are we doing about housing? 

In the first episode of What are we doing, The Highlander’s new podcast, we discuss this growing issue and try to identify some of the solutions the county is working on. 

This week you’ll hear from;  Gord Polhamus, Dianne LePage, Mike Moffat, Jaime Schmale, Jeff Strano, Michelle Corley, and warden Liz Danielsen.
