National Housing Strategy Implementation

In 2019, Canada legally committed to the right to housing in its National Housing Strategy Act. The National Right to Housing Network (NRHN) is a group of key leaders, thinkers, experts and people with lived experience of housing precarity and homelessness, with a mission to fully realize the right to housing for all and ultimately eliminate homelessness in Canada.

We are committed to the meaningful implementation of the right to housing. We believe that the key to solving the housing crisis in Canada is to recognize it as a human rights crisis, give a meaningful voice to rights holders, engage with multiple stakeholders, identify and address systemic problems, and develop practical solutions. We know that the right to housing is not a mere policy goal or aspiration. We must address inadequate housing and homelessness as human rights violations requiring urgent and coordinated action.
