CHRA response to the federal government on the National Housing Strategy

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

On June 28, the federal government announced a public consultation on a National Housing Strategy. Since that time, CHRA has worked with its members, its Aboriginal Caucus, and other national housing stakeholders to produce a vision and response to guide the development of that Strategy. On October 11, CHRA submitted its response to the federal government. Entitled “Housing At A Crossroads: CHRA’s Vision for the Next Generation of Housing Policy in Canada”, this report contains 24 specific recommendations to improve national housing policy in Canada. You will find on this webpage a copy of that response, as well as relevant Executive Summaries of the response’s recommendations.

Take the time to share this report and its recommendations with your Member of Parliament. Email, tweet, and/or provide a copy in person. It will be important for federal officials to know that Canadians support CHRA’s goal that by 2035, every person living in Canada has access to safe, affordable, and sustainable housing.
