Canadian Housing and Renewal Association

Representing the social, non-profit and affordable housing sector

The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association was established in 1968 as a national non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and strengthening the social housing sector. Our mission is to ensure all Canadians have an affordable, secure and decent place to call home. Adequate housing provides a stable foundation from which people, communities and Canada as a whole can prosper and so we advocate for improved housing policies and programs that keep housing affordable and end homelessness. We support a sustainable housing profession and work to connect the broader sector, as well as our members, who collectively house and serve hundreds of thousands of people living in or seeking affordable housing.
