Canada’s National Housing Strategy Consultations

Over at the web site of the Calgary Homeless Foundation, I’ve written a blog post about Canada’s National Housing Strategy consultations.  The link to the blog post is here.

Points raised in the blog post include the following:

-In Canada, public social spending as a percentage of our GDP is well below the OECD average.

-The amount of housing stock in Canada considered to be “social housing” is also well below the OECD average.

-The history of Canadian housing policy suggests that, when the federal government leads new construction, provinces and territories follow with funding of their own.
