Canada’s one stop platform and the #1 National voice to the rental housing industry


Posted in Events, Housing, Industry Trends, Newsworthy


Housing is a cornerstone of sustainable and inclusive communities. Each year, National Housing Day is held on November 22. It’s a day to recognize the important work done by housing partners across Canada to improve access to housing for everyone in Canada.

This year, we’re celebrating National Housing Week, which runs from November 22 to 26. During this week, we come together with partners, stakeholders and Canadians across the country to recognize and showcase their tremendous  work.

Take a look at the way our partners are helping us build a stable housing system that is more inclusive, climate conscious, and ultimately benefits everyone.
