About Us

Our mission

To engage Canadians to pledge to vote housing in the upcoming federal election and ensure all political parties support making bold investments in affordable housing and ending homelessness.

Our Story

Our Story

Homelessness and the lack of access to safe, affordable housing on the scale we see it today has not always existed. The rise of modern mass homelessness and shortage of affordable housing in Canada began in the 1980s and is the direct result of federal withdrawal from affordable housing investment and cuts to social services.

Vote Housing is a national, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy campaign led by the Canadian Lived Experience Leadership Network (CLELN), the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness, the Canadian Housing & Renewal Association, and the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada. The partner organizations represent the three leading national housing and homelessness sector organizations. CLELN is Canada’s leading national network for people who have or are experiencing homelessness.

Our campaign is supported by our coalition partners but fuelled by everyday Canadians, like you.
