Fixing Canada's Housing Crunch

Fixing Canada's Housing Crunch

Thanks to great work by FCM members, our campaign to fix Canada's housing crunch has succeeded in putting housing in the spotlight.

2013 campaign highlights

  • Resolutions: More than 180 FCM member municipalities, representing more than 60 per cent of the Canadian population, have passed council resolutions supporting the campaign. Pass a council resolution supporting the campaign and be sure to email housing@fcm.ca to let us know.

  • Roundtables: Halifax, Thompson, Brockville, Toronto, London, Regina and Gatineau have held local roundtable discussions on Canada's housing crunch. 

  • Parliament: FCM members brought the housing crunch message directly to 140 MPs and Senators-including the Prime Minister-during Advocacy Days in November.
  • Media: Canada-wide media coverage of our housing campaign. 1 in 4 Canadians spends more than 30% of their income on shelter
  • Website: fcm.ca/housingcrunch showcases the actions members are taking.
  • Twitter:#housingcrunch has been tweeted more than 3,300 times!
  • By-elections: Candidates in the four November federal by-elections answered our questionnaire on housing.

Help spread the news!
