Last week, CHRA sent a letter to the Hon. Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister, outlining our key recommendations for addressing the housing and affordability crises in Canada:
1. A Stable Pipeline of Community Housing Projects
2. Deliver Housing for Urban, Rural, and Northern Indigenous Peoples through NICHI
3. Invest in Preserving Housing Affordability
4. Create a “Team Canada” Housing Industrial Strategy
The Fall Economic Statement is an opportunity to make life fairer, more inclusive, and more affordable for people across Canada. The challenges to addressing Canada’s housing shortfalls are many and require ongoing coordination and collaboration to overcome them. The recommendations outlined in this letter are important steps to making that future a reality.
