Have your say! Federal government launches National Housing Strategy consultation

The time is now to fix Canada's housing crisis. For the first time in more than 20 years the government appears ready to re-engage on affordable housing. We have to act now to ensure ending homelessness is on the agenda.

The Federal government has launched their National Housing Strategy consultation with a new website.

This is a critical time for housing and homelessness in Canada. As the State of Homelessness in Canada showed, modern mass homelessness began with federal withdrawal from affordable housing and deep cuts to welfare and social services in the mid-1990's.

We have an opportunity to reverse those cuts and begin the end of homelessness in Canada but we must speak up. There is a very real possibility that the government creates a National Housing Strategy that does not meaningfully address homelessness. There are many competing demands on government resources. The government has to hear through this process that ending homelessness is a priority for Canadians.

Have your say! The time is now to fix Canada's housing crisis - the time is now to end homelessness in Canada.

What will it take to end homelessness in Canada?

In the State of Homelessness in Canada: 2014 the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (COH) and the CAEH traced the rise of modern mass homelessness in Canada and showed that creating enough housing to end homelessness is achievable and affordable with relatively small, but precisely targeted investments.
