Ottawa Community Housing commends the federal government on the creation of an effective and meaningful National Housing Strategy. Canadians are in need of sufficient and timely access to housing, and this is a step in the right direction to achieve that goal. Housing is the foundation of building stronger communities that in turn, contributes to a healthier Canadian economy.
Over the past few years, OCH has been recognized as a leader in the sector. With a strong tenant focus, OCH has strategically transformed its operations with investments in technology, a strong portfolio renewal strategy with new land acquisitions, and the strengthening of partnerships with the social and private sectors. OCH is ready to embrace the National Housing Strategy and help pave the way for a vital social housing sector.
OCH looks forward to collaborating with all levels of government and our dynamic partnerships to achieve a common goal of providing affordable, suitable and adequate housing to meet the need of vulnerable Canadians.
