Housing Supply

Use federal infrastructure investment to encourage construction of new housing

When it comes to housing, local, provincial and federal governments each have specific roles to play. When all three levels of government work together, improvements can be made to increase supply and ensure all Canadians have a place to call home.

As municipalities request funding to complete critical infrastructure projects, CREA asks all political parties to commit to place conditions on federal infrastructure investments to encourage the construction of new housing. This will help address the current supply challenge.

We also ask for a commitment from all federal parties to work more closely with provincial and municipal governments and, where needed, develop new solutions to regional housing challenges.
