CHRA Wins Prestigious Award of Excellence from Canadian Society of Association Executives

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

The Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) today awarded its highest award, the “Award of Excellence”, to the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association for CHRA’s 2015/16 “Housing for All” campaign. CHRA is only one of 4 associations in Canada to receive the  “Award of Excellence” honour. 

In presenting CHRA with this honour, the judges cited the creative and innovative aspects of the Housing For All campaign, as well as the fact that the campaign’s objectives were clearly demonstrated and achieved. The federal investments in social housing in the 2016 federal Budget, the Ministerial mandate letter commitments in housing, and the launch of the National Housing Strategy were all seen as positive outcomes of the Housing For All campaign. CHRA wants to thank all of our members who helped to make the Housing For All campaign an award-winning success.

Although CHRA is proud to receive this award, we will not be resting on our laurels. CHRA continues to promote and communicate its response to the National Housing Strategy with decision makers, and will continue to work with federal officials to influence the Strategy’s content and budgetary allocation.
