Canada's Housing Plan - 2024

April 13, 2024


Canada's Housing Plan: Addressing the Housing Crisis



- In a recent announcement from the Prime Minister's Office, the Canadian government has unveiled an ambitious plan to address the housing crisis across the country.

- The plan, titled "Solving the housing crisis: Canada's Housing Plan," aims to make housing more affordable and accessible for all Canadians, particularly Millennials and Gen Z, who are facing increasing challenges in finding affordable housing.


Key Points from the Announcement:

- Housing Affordability: The government recognizes the challenges faced by Canadians in affording housing, with many spending a significant portion of their income on housing costs. The plan aims to ensure that no hard-working Canadian spends more than 30% of their income on housing.

- Building New Homes: The plan outlines a strategy to unlock 3.87 million new homes by 2031, including a minimum of 2 million net new homes. The federal government will support the construction of at least 1.2 million new homes, with a call for all orders of government to build an additional 800,000 homes by 2031.

- Initiatives to Support Homebuilding: Several initiatives are proposed to facilitate the construction of new homes, including the Public Lands for Homes Plan, $15 billion in additional loans for the Apartment Construction Loan Program, and the launch of Canada Builds, a collaborative effort to build affordable homes on under-utilized lands.

- Supporting Renters and Homeowners: Measures will be implemented to protect tenants against rising rent payments, improve credit scores based on rental payment history, increase the Home Buyers' Plan withdrawal limit, and extend mortgage amortizations for first-time homebuyers purchasing newly built homes.

- Affordable Housing and Rental Support: The plan includes funding for the Affordable Housing Fund and the launch of the Canada Rental Protection Fund to protect and expand affordable housing options across the country.

- Skilled Trade Workforce: Recognizing the need for skilled trades workers in the construction industry, the plan includes investments in apprenticeship opportunities, skilled trades awareness programs, and foreign credential recognition programs.


Quotes from Government Officials:

- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau emphasized the importance of restoring fairness for every generation through ambitious action and investments in housing.

- Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland highlighted the government's commitment to helping younger Canadians achieve homeownership.

- Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities Sean Fraser emphasized the need for a collaborative effort to address the housing crisis, involving all levels of government and stakeholders.



- The announcement of Canada's Housing Plan represents a significant step towards addressing the housing crisis and ensuring that all Canadians have access to safe, affordable housing. Through targeted investments and collaborative efforts, the government aims to build a stronger, more inclusive housing market for future generations.
