From The Homeless Hub/Women’s National Housing & Homelessness Network:

The gendered housing crisis has become so severe that the Federal Housing Advocate now recognizes it as one of the top human rights issues in Canada. To this effect, she recently requested a Human Rights Review on the Government of Canada’s failure to prevent and end homelessness among women and gender-diverse people.

This Review will be the first gender-focused review of its kind in Canadian history, examining the critical housing issues that disproportionately affect women and gender-diverse people across Canada. The Review will provide recommendations to the Minister of Housing, who is obligated to table his response at the House of Commons and the Senate within 120 days. This means that the evidence can’t be ignored, and the recommendations must be addressed.
