National Housing Day commemorates the day in 1998 that the Big City Mayor’s Caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities declared homelessness to be a national disaster. National housing day takes place on November 22nd every year and has gone from one day of events to a week of events spanning from November 16th – 22nd.
The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) in collaboration with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Habitat for Humanity Canada and Evergreen City Works hold and partake in a variety of initiatives aimed at raising awareness about the importance of affordable housing in the GTA.
Working in collaboration with our partners, TREB was able to compile statistics on the state of affordable housing in the GTA and Canada.
