Federal-Provincial-Territorial Meeting of Ministers Responsible for Housing

Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers agreed today to work together to address the housing needs of all Canadians, and those of Aboriginal peoples, including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.

We've heard from Canadians, and what they’ve told us is that there is a need for more housing support for the homeless, supported and transitional housing, affordable housing, assisted home ownership, and market housing. Working together, Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers are committed to addressing these pressing needs.

Provincial and Territorial Ministers identified a wide range of priorities in their communities and the need for a flexible, sustainable, and long term approach to housing.

Ministers have strengthened their partnership and are accelerating work on a Canadian Housing Framework in consideration of the approach adopted by PT Ministers and the discussion held by FPT Ministers today.

Minister Fontana has also agreed to start bilateral discussions with PT Ministers on their priorities for housing initiatives within the parameters of Bill C-48.

British Columbia has accepted the role of provincial co-chair of the Federal, Provincial, Territorial meetings of ministers of housing.
