The new Liberal government has clearly made housing a top policy priority. With a National Housing Strategy currently being developed, the time is now to have your voice heard by federal decision makers on housing related issues.
Join fellow housing leaders at our “Housing on the Hill Day” for a day of insightful commentary, discussion, and advocacy on housing. Attendees will have a chance to hear from political leaders, visit with Members of Parliament, and network with politicians, all in an effort to help shape the National Housing Strategy.
