The National Housing Strategy has been designed as a toolkit. It features complementary initiatives working together to address challenges across the housing continuum and spectrum of housing needs. The strategy initiatives will:
- build new affordable housing and renew the existing affordable housing stock
- provide technical assistance, tools and resources to build capacity in the community housing sector and funds to support local organizations
- support research, capacity-building, excellence and innovation in housing research
The strategy will promote partnerships and the alignment of efforts in order to achieve ambitious outcomes.
CMHC is leading and delivering the National Housing Strategy federal initiatives. In some cases, CMHC will work with other federal departments or agencies to deliver the programs. In other cases, services may be contracted out to third-parties.
