The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association is the national voice for the full range of affordable housing and homelessness issues and solutions across Canada. Our members collectively house and shelter hundreds of thousands of Canadians, and provide housing support to many more. Our members and stakeholders are diverse and include housing providers, municipalities, businesses, all 13 provincial and territorial housing departments, service and support agencies, individuals, students and other housing-related associations and networks.

We provide a home for the housing sector and for all who believe that every Canadian should have a decent, adequate and affordable place to call home.

Become a member. Add your voice so, together, we grow our numbers and our influence.

No matter what part of the Canadian housing spectrum you are involved with, the need for a national organization to advocate for improved federal funding, policies and programs, has never been more acute. We are that national organization.

We bring the sector together with face-to-face events, webinars, interest-based caucuses and a board of directors that reflects our diverse membership. Our annual national congress is a one-of-a-kind event where housing professionals gather to share information, network and learn about best practices from experts - and from each other.

Member input is most valued. You have the ability to direct our activities by running for a position on the board, participating in the AGM or on key committees, nominating and/or receiving an Award of Recognition, and so muchmore.
