Workshop Resources: Claiming the Right to Housing Across Canada

December 21, 2021

Throughout 2021, CCHR and the National Right to Housing Network (NRHN) held a series of regional workshops with local partners across Canada.

During these workshops, participants identified the systemic issues that prevent people from realizing their right to housing, including issues faced by: Indigenous people, women-led households, persons with disabilities, members of racialized groups, immigrants and refugees, members of LGBTQ2S+ communities and people with low incomes.

Participants have also proposed solutions for how this right can be claimed under the National Housing Strategy Act (NHSA).
