Help Shape the National Housing Strategy

On June 28, The Hon. Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children, and Social Development, announced the federal government’s consultation process on the development of a National Housing Strategy. The announcement was made at the conclusion of the federal, provincial, and territorial Housing Ministers meeting in Victoria.

The consultation will take place in two phases. The first phase will involve establishing high level outcomes and objectives for a National Housing Strategy. The second phase will consult with Canadians on specific policy recommendations and innovations in a number of thematic areas along the housing spectrum. For more information on the first phase, and to submit ideas on the high level outcomes, visit the government’s official consultation website at
