Federal, provincial and territorial governments are primary partners in housing and have a shared responsibility and complementary roles for housing.

Ministers responsible for housing endorsed a multilateral Housing Partnership Framework*, which commits to achieving better housing outcomes for Canada.

The multilateral Framework asserts a shared vision for housing and sets the foundation for bilateral agreements on the delivery of key National Housing Strategy initiatives.

Provinces and territories deliver and cost-match federal funds from the National Housing Strategy through bilateral agreements with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

These agreements align with the new vision for housing under the National Housing Strategy, and they are more flexible and in line with expected outcomes.

Presented below are the new bilateral agreements that have been signed with the provinces and territories.
