The National Housing Accord: A Multi-Sector Approach to Ending Canada’s Rental Housing Crisis
REALPAC, CAEH, Place Centre
As Canada’s housing crisis worsens, a group of housing sector organizations – non-profit and for-profit housing providers, developers and investors – have put forward a plan to restore affordability, protect Canada’s most vulnerable, and build at least two million new affordable and market rental units by 2030.
The National Housing Accord’s recommendations points provide the blueprint for millions of people to have a safe, secure and affordable place to live. If implemented, it will address housing affordability, meet the needs of our growing population, create jobs and play a significant role in ending homelessness. We are ready to step up and address this crisis, but we need the federal government to join us and step into their vital housing leadership role.
