Monday is National Housing Day to recognize the work done by housing partners across Canada to improve access for everyone to housing.

Jim Dunn, project director at McMaster University’s Canadian Housing Evidence Collaborative,(CHEC) has been following residents of Toronto’s Regent Park public housing complex through a redevelopment project.

He found evidence that people have improved health when they feel safe and satisfied with their housing.

Dunn has spent a decade studying residents of subsidized housing in Toronto and Hamilton.

CHEC brings together academics to research the connection between income, housing and health. It also works with 50 organizations with 2,000 policymakers working for safe, adequate, accessible, and affordable housing.
