Dear friends,

As the Housing Critic for the Official Opposition, I am proud to present a bill that will ensure safe, secure, accessible, and affordable housing for all Canadians.

If made law, this bill would require the minister responsible for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to work with provincial ministers, municipal representatives, First Nations communities, non-profit housing groups, the private sector, and civil society organizations to finally create a Canadian national housing strategy.

I will be formally announcing the tabling of this bill with Deputy Critic for Housing, Andrew Cash (Davenport), at a press conference in Ottawa on February 16, at 10:30 am.

I invite you to join us in calling on the government to support this bill and implement a national housing strategy.

Please sign and return the attached letter, signalling your endorsement for a law that will guarantee all Canadians access to safe, secure, accessible and affordable housing.

We would greatly appreciate your support in our collective fight for housing in Canada.

Sincerely,

Marie-Claude Morin
Députée | MP   Saint-Hyacinthe-Bagot
