A New Housing Affordability Agenda for Canada: Submission to the National Housing Strategy

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

This submission to inform Canada's national housing strategy outlines a set of recommendations that will lead towards real, tangible progress in the short term and lasting change in the housing system. We offer four high-impact and cost-effective solutions that together address a diverse range of needs and help us advance towards our shared vision of housing affordability:

  • Ending homelessness in Canada
  • Making housing more affordable for all Canadians in core housing need and eliminating deep core housing need
  • Increasing the supply and diversity of housing options that are affordable
  • Ensuring the supply and ongoing viability of social housing
These four recommendations are complementary and support other pressing federal policy objectives, such as social inclusion, poverty reduction, and environmental sustainability.
