3. Résumé

« The study included an examination of the housing and research literature, and an electronic survey of municipalities of different sizes from across Canada. While the response rate was lower than desired, the feedback received provides important insights into the importance that municipalities place on housing and the role that housing plays in promoting and supporting family well-being. The study findings also reinforce the importance of partnerships across all levels of government (Federal, Provincial and municipal) in putting into place effective strategies for responding to the needs of vulnerable families and citizens. The study findings also draw attention to the importance of partnerships and suggest that there is a significant level of innovation happening in local communities. » (p. i)
