What we do

CHRA believes that, although shelter is a basic element of human survival, adequate and affordable housing provides much more than a physical structure to meet this human need. An affordable and secure home provides a stable foundation from which individuals, communities and Canada as a whole can prosper.

CHRA undertakes research, develops policy, makes recommendations and advocates on behalf of its members to compel decision-makers to make the kinds of choices that will lead us to a future where all Canadians can access and afford the type of housing they need.

To support our members in their own activities and decision-making, we provide education and training opportunities through webinars, the CHRA Annual Congress and other activities.
