Submission to the Pre-Budget Consultations for the 2019 Canadian Federal Budget

Monday, August 13, 2018

In response to the House of Commons Finance Committee’s annual call for recommendations to inform the federal government’s 2019 Budget, CHRA submitted a brief that included four specific recommendations:

  1. simplify and extend the Federal Community Housing Initiative
  2. increase investment to build new affordable housing
  3. expand the current Federal Lands Initiative to allow for acquisition of provincial or municipal lands for affordable housing
  4. develop and implement an Urban, Rural and Northern Indigenous Housing Strategy

CHRA will be seeking an in-person appearance before the Finance Committee this fall to discuss these and other ideas directly with the Committee. Read our submission.
