Minister Jean-Yves Duclos:

“Hi. I’m Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, and I’d like to hear from you on an issue that is of great importance to all Canadians – housing that meets their needs and that they can afford.

“Canadians know that housing matters. It’s more than bricks and mortar…Housing is the cornerstone of building sustainable, inclusive communities and a strong Canadian economy where we can all thrive.  Yet, too many Canadians are unable to find or afford decent housing.

“Our government is already investing in housing to address the most pressing needs. But we also know that we need to do things differently in the future. For that purpose, we’re developing a national housing strategy to chart the course for better housing, socio-economic and environmental outcomes for all Canadians, including those living in Indigenous and Northern communities.

“And that’s why we are reaching out to get your views on a vision for housing so that all Canadians can have access to housing that’s sustainable, affordable, inclusive and flexible.

“So, let’s talk housing.

“Please share your thoughts and ideas with us. Speak or write to your Member of Parliament, comment through our web site, or join the conversation on social media using the hashtag ‘Let’s talk housing’.

“Thank you for helping us create a housing strategy for all Canadians.”
