Our goal is to ensure that women and children have safe and affordable housing and that housing for women and children is prioritized.
Our six Calls to Action spark change
The policies that keep our housing and shelters active need improving, and our Calls to Action are one way to ensure that happens.
Housing and Women With Lived Expertise
We’re asking Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to collaborate with relevant women’s organizations and with women with lived expertise.
First Nations, Métis and Inuit Women’s Housing
We want women’s housing to be Indigenous women led, culturally relevant, and inclusive of women and children living on and off reserves.
Infrastructure Funding for Housing
We’re asking CMHC to reinstate the Shelter Enhancement Program.
A Voice for Women’s Housing
We want continued support and funding for the Pan-Canadian Voice for Women’s Housing.
Operational Funding for Women’s Housing and Women-Serving Organizations
We’re asking for operating funding for women-led, women-serving housing organizations.
Women and a Guaranteed Annual Income
We’re asking CMHC to advocate for a Guaranteed Annual Income.
Participants make all the difference
I was completely heard. I felt that all that I had gone through I had not gone through in vain. Being able to share it on such a big platform, where making a change is possible, allowed for my voice to be heard.
The Pan-Canadian Women’s Housing symposium is an opportunity to bring together women from across Canada, who have knowledge and lived expertise, to discuss and advocate for real change.
