The Government of Canada has made historic new investments in housing under the National Housing Strategy.
This research identifies and evaluates the outputs and outcomes of these federal investments. It also supports the on-going development and refinement of policies and programs over the coming years. It provides sector stakeholders with needed information on approaches for new construction, repairs and renewal of affordable housing projects.
Specifically, this research priority area has a focus on:
- Analyzing trends, create baseline data on what is being built, repaired, and renewed and who is being served by National Housing Strategy investments.
- Assessing the characteristics, affordability, and performance of National Housing Strategy funded projects, from an accessibility, energy efficiency and social inclusion perspective.
- Documenting and assessing the health, environmental, and socio-economic outcomes for households and communities helped through National Housing Strategy investments.
The information supports new and existing National Housing Strategy initiatives.
