Housing For All: Sustaining and Renewing Social Housing for Low-Income Households

Housing For All: Sustaining and Renewing Social Housing for Low-Income Households

Housing For All: Sustaining and Renewing Social Housing for Low-Income Households ushers in a new plan for the revitalization of social housing in Canada, in the wake of expiring federal funding through operating agreements. The Report proposes to do things differently – to build an efficient, self-sustaining and innovative system of social housing in Canada. Three broad recommendations are articulated; two new investment streams, for affordability and for capital repairs, to be designed and delivered by the provincial/territorial governments through a negotiated cost-sharing framework with the federal government, and a third recommendation enabling a transformation of the social housing sector.
