The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA) is the national voice for the full range of affordable housing and homelessness issues and solutions across Canada. We have over 300 members who collectively house and shelter hundreds of thousands of Canadians, and provide housing support to many more. Our members and stakeholders are diverse and include housing providers, municipalities, businesses, all 13 provincial and territorial housing departments, service and support agencies, individuals, students and other housing-related associations and networks.
CHRA provides a home for the housing sector and for all who believe that every Canadian should have a decent, adequate and affordable place to call home.
Join CHRA. Add your voice so, together, we grow our numbers and our influence.
No matter what part of the Canadian housing spectrum you are involved with, the need for a national organization to advocate for improved federal funding, policies and programs, has never been more acute. CHRA is that national organization.
CHRA brings the sector together with face-to-face events, webinars, interest-based caucuses and a board of directors that is reflective of our diverse membership. Our annual, national Congress is a one-of-a-kind event where the housing sector gathers to share information, network and learn about best practices from experts - and from each other.
Member input is valued. You have the ability to direct CHRA activities by running for a position on the Board of Directors, participating in the AGM or on key committees, nominating or receiving a CHRA Award of Recognition, and more.
