For the record, Canada’s right to housing is the result of work by thousands of people who have advocated for housing for many years, reaching out to federal politicians, writing letters to the editor, and speaking up on social media to call for housing as a human right.. Without all those advocates, it’s safe to say that there would be no right to housing in Canada today, and there would be no recruitment campaign for the country’s first official Housing Advocate.
