CHRA response to National Housing Strategy

November 22, 2017 – Canadian Housing and Renewal Association’s response to the release of the National Housing Strategy.

The federal government today unveiled Canada’s first ever National Housing Strategy, a historic plan which contains a series of policies and programs that puts the needs of Canada’s most vulnerable populations at its core.  The Strategy aims to invest over $40 billion with the objective of creating 100,000 new affordable housing units, repairing and renewing 300,000 units, and removing 530,000 households from core housing need.  As the national association representing the social, affordable, and non-profit housing sector in Canada, the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA) applauds the release of today’s Strategy.
