Canada Needs a National Housing Strategy
What better time than today, United Nations World Habitat Day, to push the need for a national housing strategy in Canada?
Canada is the only major country in the world without a national housing strategy. The federal government needs to take the lead to ensure programs are put in place to improve the quality of life for all Canadians. This was just one of the many issues discussed at our four housing forums with federal candidates [Malpeque, Charlottetown, Cardigan & Egmont ridings] the last six weeks of the campaign. Reach out to the candidates in your riding today and tell them that housing is important, that over three million Canadians live in housing insecurity, and that it is an important issue for you and every Canadian.
Be informed. Make a decision. Vote!
