Housing and Homelessness

The United Nations has described housing and homelessness in Canada as a “national emergency”. (1) An estimated 250,000 people are homeless, with another 1.5 million individuals unable to access satisfactory housing, or face a serious financial burden to keep their housing. Aboriginal peoples, newcomers, lone parents, women, people living with disabilities, and seniors are all disproportionately affected by housing insecurity.(2)

CFUW has called on the Government in Canada to work with other levels of government to establish a National Housing and Homelessness Strategy to address the housing crisis, curb costs, and help lift lower income families from poverty.
