National Housing Day of Action
Fri, 18 November 2016, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
LET'S MARCH TO DEMONSTRATE OUR COMMITMENT TO HOUSING AS A HUMAN RIGHT
Food, water and shelter are some of the most fundamental human rights, yet Canada is facing an affordable housing and homelessness crisis. Everything begins with housing - without it, no one can truly live life with dignity.
On November 18th, join the people’s pledge on our National Housing Day of Action – take to the streets and march for the right to housing!
The Canadian government has promised to fix the affordable housing crisis with Canada’s first ever National Housing Strategy. On November 22nd, they will announce what they have heard people across Canada say is needed in a National Housing Strategy. We are calling for the government to ensure our National Housing Strategy will guarantee everyone the right to safe, adequate, and affordable housing.
Join our movement. Make your voice heard. Together let’s make a commitment that we will hold the government accountable.
March will end at the Toronto Homeless Memorial (outside Church of the Holy Trinity, 10 Trinity Sq.). A light community lunch will follow (wheelchair accessible).

Who are we?
We are Canada’s civil society and we are upholding that safe, adequate and affordable housing is a right for all. We are people with lived experiences of homelessness and precarious housing. We are friends, family and neighbours who believe that everyone deserves a home. We are community groups, unions and organizations working to support everyone’s right to live life with dignity. We, the people, believe that housing is a human right first and foremost, not a commodity.
