The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation has launched an initiative to collect “bold and innovative ideas” from Canadians, which will allow them to help shape the nation’s housing strategy.
“Canadians know that housing matters. It’s more than bricks and mortar…Housing is the cornerstone of building sustainable, inclusive communities and a strong Canadian economy where we can all thrive. Yet, too many Canadians are unable to find or afford decent housing,” Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said in a video at the launch of the campaign. “Our government is already investing in housing to address the most pressing needs.
“But we also know that we need to do things differently in the future. For that purpose, we’re developing a national housing strategy to chart the course for better housing, socio-economic and environmental outcomes for all Canadians, including those living in Indigenous and Northern communities.”
The initiative, which has been dubbed “Let’s Talk Housing,” encourages members of the private sector, non-profits, municipalities, and housing industry stakeholders to share their respective views on what is needed to help improve Canada’s housing.
This is a chance for agents to help shape housing policy.
