Calling all NACHA Members to Get Involved! National Campaign: You Hold the Key - Fix the Co-op Housing Crunch

Canada's governments need to take action now to keep rent-geared-to-income housing assistance in place for low-income households who will lose it after the federal housing agreements end.  We're asking governments to create and fund long-term, cost-shared rent supplement programs, to be delivered by provinces and territories.

If your co-op wants to protect these homes, please pass an important resolution to endorse the You Hold the Key - Fix the Co-op Housing Crunch campaign.

When your Board (or members) passes the resolution, please let NACHA know via info@nacha.ca and send a copy of the resolution to David Granovsky, CHF Canada's Government Relations Coordinator, in one of the following ways:
