Life In Canada
Through Habitat for Humanity Canada’s Affordable Housing Survey it was found that:
74% of Canadians believe that housing could solve a range of issues in out society.
9 in 10 people believe that there is a shortage of affordable housing in Canada.
Out of 54% of renters and 31% of homeowners, renters are far more concerned about their ability to pay rent.
Partnering With Indigenous Communities
Across Canada, Indigenous communities in Canada are disproportionately affected by the housing crisis. Their househols are two times more likely to live in inadequate dwellings than non-Indigenous households, and three times as likely to be living in a home in need of critical repairs.
Through partnerships with Indigenous communities, Habitat for Humanity Canada are:
Doing critical repairs to existing housing within Indigenous communities.
Carrying out projects that complement access to safe housing and sustainability.
Capacity-building with Habitat organisations to support Indigenous housing and community development within their service areas, including training for staff.
