External Research Program

For over 25 years, under the External Research Program, CMHC provided funding assistance to help Canadian researchers carry out research investigations on topics related to housing. The intent of the program was to encourage and draw out new ideas, innovative solutions, and better understanding of housing issues. Although new applications are no longer being accepted, ERP projects underway will be completed. CMHC may publish and disseminate the results through the Canadian Housing Information Centre.
