The VOTE HOUSING Campaign

VOTE HOUSING is a national non-partisan campaign to end homelessness and housing need in Canada. This campaign has a simple but ambitious goal: to engage thousands of Canadians across the country to demand policies to end homelessness and housing need in the next federal election: “We want to harness the power of Canadians across the country to ensure all political parties support making bold investments in affordable housing and ending homelessness.”
