Affordable Housing in Canada

CMHC delivers federal investments, and provides the tools and resources necessary to help individuals and families access affordable housing.

Greater Access to Affordable Housing

Budget 2016 announced significant new investments to give Canadians greater access to more affordable housing.

These investments, delivered through the existing Investment in Affordable Housing (IAH) with provinces and territories, include:

  • double the amount of existing funding
  • additional funding for northern and Inuit regions
  • targeted funding for seniors, victims of family violence, and to improve water and energy efficiency through retrofits and renovations to existing social housing

We will work with provinces and territories to implement this new affordable housing funding over the coming months, and will also continue to support new construction, renovation, housing affordability and independent living.
