This submission was made to the Government of Canada’s consultation on National Housing Strategy’s human rights-based approach to housing, through which they are requesting “opinions and ideas about the key elements of a human rights-based approach to housing, the proposed approach to the new legislation, and new concepts to be explored.”

The submission outlines key reasons why the CCPA-BC would welcome a rights-based approach, and describes two central elements that would be needed: namely, a fiscal commitment to build affordable housing and to provide income supports.
