The Federal Housing Advocate is one of the three core accountability mechanisms introduced under Canada’s first right to housing legislation, the 2019 National Housing Strategy Act (NHSA). 

One of the key responsibilities of the Federal Housing Advocate is to identify systemic housing issues and refer them to a three-person review panel which will hold hearings, issue opinions, and make recommendations to the Minister about what measures are required for compliance with Canada’s obligation to progressively realize the right to housing.

The Federal Housing Advocate’s preliminary recommendations to the first review panel on the issue of the financialization of purpose-built rental housing are available for public viewing here.
