The Time is Now
235,000|Homeless|It is Urgent
27% of renters (and 6% of owners) in Canada live in housing that is unaffordable, in need of major repairs and/or is overcrowded while over 235,000 Canadians currently experience homelessness every year. More than 36% of Canadians have been homeless themselves or know someone who has.
Actions|Beat Words|We have Momentum
CMHC has set a goal that by 2030, every person in Canada has access to housing that is affordable and meets their needs, and the federal government has committed to eliminate chronic homelessness. We now need all parties to act to make these commitments a reality.
80%|Support|We have broad support
More than 8 in 10 Canadians support building new affordable housing as part of our pandemic recovery, including a significant majority of Canadians who support an urban Indigenous housing strategy.
