CHF Canada signs on to A Shared Housing Agenda
Today, Evergreen released A Shared Housing Agenda: Priorities for Ontario in 2018. The document outlines 6 priorities for tackling housing affordability in Ontario.
CHF Canada is proud to be one of the 28 original signatories to this document, along with Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association (ONPHA), Daily Bread Food Bank, United Way (GTA), Canadian Mental Health Association and Ontario Home Builders’ Association. The broad coalition underscores the need for Ontario to take bold steps to improve affordable housing.
