Canada has one of the best housing systems in the world. However, some 1.7 million families still do not have a home that meets their basic needs.
The analysis featured in What We Heard: Shaping Canada’s National Housing Strategy helped identify important housing challenges where research could help provide answers.
As part of the National Housing Strategy, a Collaborative Housing Research Network has been created to support sector innovation and new housing solutions. This will be accomplished through an interdisciplinary, multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial approach, as part of the enhanced research agenda under Canada’s National Housing Strategy. This is a joint initiative between CMHC and the Social Sciences and Humanities Council.
