Full submission
2-page summary

We encourage you to widely share, print and distribute our submission and/or summary. We welcome everyone to use them in your own efforts to call for an adequate National Housing Strategy that centers housing as a human right!

We also feel that this consultation process has been inadequate so far (details can be found in our full submission). It should not be a one-time consultation that wraps up on November 22nd, 2016 with a summary report and an announcement. The federal government needs to make a commitment to meaningfully engage and involve those with lived experience of precarious housing, housing inadequacy or homelessness, and those who work with vulnerable tenants and homeless people. This must happen throughout all stages of development, implementation and evaluation of the National Housing Strategy.
