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.
