Federal election underway: Four easy ways to help the Vote Housing campaign
Published August 19, 2021
On Sunday, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that a federal election would be held on September 20th.
CHF Canada is ready, together with an unprecedented coalition of organizations and individuals, to ensure the next federal government prioritizes affordable housing, including co-ops, and ending homelessness under the banner of Vote Housing.
The Vote Housing Nanos Research poll shows public opinion is with us: 84% Canadians support investing in building new affordable housing, and nearly 8 in 10 Canadians say they would be more, or somewhat more, supportive of a political party proposing such measures. It also showed the urgency of this issue, with 1 in 3 renters worried about paying their rent next month alone.
Here’s what you can do to help add to the Vote Housing momentum:
- Share our poll results, poll graphics, Tweet and/or Facebook post
- If you haven’t already, join our campaign with a pledge to Vote Housing
- If you live in a co-op, have your co-op endorse the campaign
- Encourage your family, friends and neighbours to support Vote Housing.
Together we can make this election about housing!
