National Housing Day is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of housing. It’s also a call for us to work collectively to build a future where every Canadian has the warmth and safety of a home.
… more than 4 walls and a roof — it’s the foundation of everything we do. It’s a place where everyone should feel safe to be themselves.
Without stable housing, everything else becomes more challenging. Housing helps us stay employed, do better in school and to access community services. A safe and secure home gives us the stability we need to face life’s challenges and enables us to participate fully in society.
What does home mean to you?
