After the October 21 election, CFAA will have a critical window to build key relationships with the new or renewed government. As the voice of Canada’s rental housing providers, it is critical that CFAA maintains constant communication with the federal government and CMHC about landlords’ needs and interests, as well as the value that rental housing provides to the economy and people of Canada.

CFAA is now engaged in a direct membership drive to increase the work we can do for the rental housing industry at this critical time. Along with the continued involvement of member associations, CFAA will consult with our direct members to make sure we are seeking the program improvements that will serve them best.

CFAA Goals

  1. Improve the environment for the rental housing industry. That includes focusing rental construction incentives on the areas where there is the greatest need for new rental construction, and promoting the use of direct financial assistance to tenants rather than subsidies for social housing at much greater cost.
  2. Avoid tax increases, and especially any increase in the capital gains inclusion rate.

Growth in direct memberships will enable CFAA to engage a well-connected, national government relations firm to provide greater monitoring of federal initiatives, and assist on key federal issues, including tax and CMHC housing policy issues.

As CFAA grows, other benefits for members include access to new members-only areas of the CFAA website, new education and training opportunities, and discounts on registrations to the CFAA Conference and other international apartment events.
