CHF CANADA’S SUBMISSION FOR THE NATIONAL HOUSING STRATEGY: LET’S TALK CO-OPERATIVE HOUSING

Canada’s housing co‑ops are ready to take a leading role in the federal government’s National Housing Strategy, according to an October report submitted by CHF Canada for the federal government’s housing strategy consultation.

As governments struggle to address affordability issues in housing markets across the country, housing co‑operatives have already developed a business model that builds and sustains quality affordable housing for their members. Let’s Talk Co-operative Housing proposes three priorities that together, will advance the vision of Canada’s National Housing Strategy where all Canadians can have access to housing that is affordable and meets their needs:

  • Protect low-income households living in housing co‑operatives
  • Promote policies and programs that leverage new investments in co‑operative housing;
  • Build new co‑operative housing.

Canadians are increasingly concerned about economic uncertainty and a persistent lack of affordable housing. With unprecedented public support for federal action, CHF Canada joins the many voices urging the federal government commit to long term solutions needed to build a housing system where all Canadians can have access to an affordable, adequate place to call home.

You can download the full report.

SPEAK UP FOR CO-OP HOUSING DURING MINISTER DUCLOS’ FACEBOOK LIVE EVENT: NOV 22

You can help encourage federal funding commitment for co‑ops in Canada’s housing strategy.

Mark your calendar for November 22 at 11:00 am EST and join Minister Jean-Yves Duclos for a Facebook live broadcast where he will launch the National Housing Strategy’s “What We Heard” report.

The Facebook live broadcast will allow you to react in real time to this milestone moment in the development of a National Housing Strategy. Co‑op members can also take this opportunity to promote the success of the co‑operative housing model while also encouraging federal government to commit to long term measures that will protect low-income members living in housing co‑ops.

The live broadcast will stream from CMHC’s Facebook page.
