Social housing is at the top of the list, as the district services board prepares their budget for 2019. Andrew Poirier is the director for the City of Kenora.
"Like every other budget, I think, they're all tough these days. I haven't seen one in a long time that wasn't," he said.
The service board is looking at a number of initiatives, including the creation of new social housing units, supports for the homeless and subsidized daycare for parents trying to re-enter the workforce.
"We are working through it and making sure we are going to make a difference for people in the Kenora District Services Board," Poirier added.
