The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA) and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) invite you to:

Housing on the Hill Day 2017
October 17, 2017
Lord Elgin Hotel, 100 Elgin Street
Ottawa, Ontario

CHRA and CAEH are once again teaming up to host “Housing on the Hill” 2017 on Tuesday, October 17. With over $15 billion in investments in social and affordable housing and homelessness programs contained in the 2017 Budget, and with a National Housing Strategy to be unveiled shortly, Housing on the Hill provides a timely and unique opportunity to engage with Members of Parliament to seek out their support, raise awareness, and set the stage for additional investments in housing in future years.

Join fellow housing leaders at our “Housing on the Hill Day” for a day of insightful commentary, discussion, and advocacy on housing. Attendees will have a firsthand opportunity to learn about the National Housing Strategy, visit one on one with Members of Parliament, and network with politicians – all in an effort to raise awareness and build long term political support for a National Housing Strategy, and lay the groundwork for current and future sustainable funding for housing and homelessness policies.

8:00am – 8:30am: Breakfast and networking
