SSHRC and the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) are partnering to offer a new joint initiative aimed at funding research related to housing in order to help set the stage for the creation of a Collaborative Housing Research Network. Research projects undertaken by teams composed of academics as well as non-academics will focus on 5 priority areas that were determined by CMHC:

  1. Housing for those in greatest need;
  2. Community Housing Sustainability;
  3. Northern Housing;
  4. Sustainable Housing and Communities;
  5. Balanced Supply of Housing

The first stage of this two stage competition will be through the Partnership Development Grants and are valued at $80,000 over 1 year. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a proposal at the second stage of the Partnership Grants. Application forms will be available at the beginning of August 2018 with a November 15th 2018 deadline.
