The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA) and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) invite you to: Housing on the Hill Day 2017, October 17, 2017

CHRA and CAEH are once again teaming up to host “Housing on the Hill” 2017 on Tuesday, October 17.  With over $15 billion in investments in social and affordable housing and homelessness programs contained in the 2017 Budget, and with a National Housing Strategy to be unveiled shortly, Housing on the Hill provides a timely and unique opportunity to engage with Members of Parliament to seek out their support, raise awareness, and set the stage for additional investments in housing in future years.

CHRA believes that the federal government has an opportunity through continued investment to achieve the objective of every person living in Canada having access to safe, affordable and sustainable housing by 2035; and that the enactment of a National Housing Strategy and an Indigenous Housing Strategy has the potential to address a number of longer-term and structural concerns facing housing providers, and most importantly, their tenants.
