The federal government is re-engaging in affordable housing through the National Housing Strategy. It provides a platform for the public, private and non-profit sectors to come together. Their collaborative efforts will provide more Canadians with a place to call home.

The goal of this historic strategy is to make sure Canadians across the country can access housing that meets their needs and that they can afford. Over the next 10 years, the Strategy will:

  • cut chronic homelessness in half
  • remove 530,000 families from housing need
  • invest in the construction of up to 160,000 new affordable homes

To achieve the goal, the strategy will first focus on the most vulnerable Canadians first.
