The Housing Research Awards Program recognizes world-class housing research being conducted in Canada and provides funding for research teams to promote and expand their work. There are 4 monetary awards given out each year:
- The CMHC President’s Medal for Outstanding Housing Research ($20,000)
- The Gold Roof Award for Housing Research Excellence ($10,000)
- The Gold Roof Award for Knowledge to Action ($10,000)
- The North Star Travel Award for Northern or Remote Research (Two or more awards of up to $5,000 each)
With these awards, we aim to make great, useful research more visible. We also want to ensure that this research gets to the right people, who can then put it into practice. The overall goal: to enhance expertise and capacity in Canada’s housing sector.
