Public consultations on the National Housing Strategy’s human rights-based approach to housing are underway until June 2018.

The Government of Canada believes all Canadians deserve access to housing that meets their needs and that they can afford. That’s why we have committed to progressively realize a human rights-based approach to housing. We are doing this to help strengthen and ensure that our vision for housing in Canada focusses on the housing needs of the most vulnerable Canadians, both now and in the future. A human rights-based approach to housing focuses on ensuring that every Canadian has access to a safe and affordable place to call home. It is grounded in the core principles of accountability, participation, non-discrimination and inclusion.

Have your say with a written submission, such as either a letter with your views or idea paper with additional concepts on the human rights based approach to housing.
