On February 8, 2021 The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA) and the Community Housing Transformation Centre (CHTC) hosted a consultation session on the Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI) to better understand how the initiative can improved as a second phase and inform the federal government. The feedback received was invaluable in determining needed changes to the program should it be renewed: something that the House of Commons Finance Committee recommended to the Minister of Finance last week.

Using this feedback, CHRA Executive Director Jeff Morrison sent a letter with recommendations on how to improve RHI to The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development on February 25, 2021.
