CHRA Appears Before House of Commons Human Resources Committee to Discuss Anti-Poverty Strategy

On February 14, CHRA President Stephan Corriveau and Executive Director Jeff Morrison appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities to discuss the government’s proposed Anti-Poverty Strategy.  Given the strong link between affordable housing and poverty reduction, CHRA used the appearance to reiterate the recommendations CHRA identified in the National Housing Strategy, and to discuss the role of social housing in respect to poverty alleviation.  A link to the Committee minutes can be found here.
