Canada's Housing Opportunity: Urgent Solutions for a National Housing Strategy

Housing, PCH, Federal, Canada, Non-Government, Housing Research

Canada’s federal government has made a commitment to develop a national housing strategy. Canadians have also given this government an unprecedented mandate to robustly invest in social infrastructure across the country. Together, these two realities create a once-in-a-generation window of opportunity to transform Canada’s housing sector and improve lives.

Municipalities are ready to work with other orders of government, Indigenous communities and the non-profit and private housing sectors to seize this opportunity. With the comprehensive recommendations in this document, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and its 2,000 members are calling for federal leadership to enable this work to begin.
