Let's Talk Housing: Responding to a National Housing Strategy

VIDEO: Hon. Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, asks Canadians to help shape the National Housing Strategy.
The federal government has released a call to Canadians for input on a new National Housing Strategy. This welcome response and promise was announced earlier this year with the release of the 2016 FBudget. Here at Raising the Roof, we're working in collaboration with our partners to develop a response that speaks to how things like affordable housing, social housing and subsidies can play a large role in putting an end to homelessness. We will be sharing this response publicly once complete - so stay tuned!
In addition to encouraging other organizational submissions, during the month of August we will be promoting 100% agency staff response to the government survey using the hashtag #100forHousing. Get your staff team to each complete the quick 5-minute survey and ensure the message on the importance of housing is heard. We are also encouraging individuals with lived experience as well as the general public to participate and let our government know that housing is a priority and a basic human right for all Canadians.
