Supporting Women

  • Many of the initiatives under the NHS will prioritize women, families and women and their children fleeing violence.

  • The National Housing Co-Investment Fund will support the construction, repair and renewal of a range of housing types, including 7,000 shelter spaces created or repaired for survivors fleeing violence.

  • Additional shelter spaces will reduce wait-lists.

  • Leaders in the housing community have asked that 25% of NHS investments go to projects for women, girls, and their families. The Government of Canada supports this commitment and will work towards its realization.
