The Office of the Federal Housing Advocate released their annual report to the federal Housing Minister, outlining findings from submissions they received from 2022 to 2023 through their online public submission process that allows people from across Canada to report directly to the Advocate about systemic issues related to inadequate housing and homelessness. The report outlines systemic housing issues related to affordability, rising rents, the difficulty people face in securing housing, the lack of suitable housing options and the long waitlists to access deeply affordable housing. Submissions were made by people living on lower incomes, people with disabilities, women and gender-diverse people, many of whom shared their experiences with facing increasing barriers and discrimination. The Federal Housing Advocate provides recommendations for governments to urgently address these systemic housing issues and work towards solutions that implement the right to housing for all.
