Day on the Hill
Each year, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association's Day on the Hill brings together Members of Parliament, Senators, and home building industry leaders from across Canada for a day on Parliament Hill to discuss housing, Canadians and communities. CHBA's 2019 Day on the Hill will take place on February 26th.
The federal government plays a key role in housing, and its policies help determine whether young Canadians and families can achieve their dreams of having a home of their own.
We will meet with MPs and Senators about their perspective on housing, and our leaders provided industry insights that can assist in developing informed and effective federal policies, going forward.
With so many Millenials now locked out of homeownership, our key asks are about
adjusting the stress test and returning to 30-year insured mortgages for first-time homebuyers
survey of builder and developer members
shows the impacts recent changes have had on buyers and industry, and how our recommendations can help unlock the door to homeownership.
By sharing ideas about how best to protect affordability, we can work together to ensure young Canadians can find a place to call home. We can make our communities stronger and more competitive. And we can create jobs and ensure the next generation of skilled workers is ready to continue building and renovating our cities and towns.
Housing matters – to everyone, in every community. It matters to the economy, and to the economic prosperity of Canadians. It’s a conversation worth having.
