Housing Important to Health

A report written in 1912 indicates the importance of housing: "It is from the standpoint of the health of the people that the all-important question of housing must be approached. Housing conditions should be regulated and supervised in a strong and almost imperative manner by a central national health authority. By such means much may be done towards conserving the nation's most valuable asset." Read the Conservation Commission of Canada's 1912 report (in PDF).
