Let's get housing

Canada’s housing crisis calls for building 5.8 million new homes by 2030. We need to get these homes right. That means building them to be affordable, resilient to climate change, and aligned with net-zero emissions.

The Task Force for Housing & Climate brings together Canada’s brightest minds to tackle this issue. We call on federal, provincial and municipal decision-makers to face down the twin challenges of affordability and climate change, and to unleash a historic boost in housing growth.

Stay tuned for new insights and sharp policy recommendations.

Meet the Task Force.
