Housing Strategy to nurture the next generation of experts

by Ephraim Vecina on 25 Nov 2018

As part of the National Housing Strategy, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation will be investing $241 million towards the collection of a much higher quality of housing data – an initiative that would include grooming the next generation of industry experts.

Such data would be valuable guideposts for the CMHC, which is looking at improving its understanding of the dynamics of housing affordability.

Among the most crucial parts of this is the Housing Research Scholarship Program, which will select the brightest Canadians to participate in postdoctoral fellowships.

The courses will train them in the fine art of developing new solutions that would best fit the housing problems they will be facing, the Crown corporation stated.

Part of the CMHC investment will also be allocated for the Expert Community on Housing, a web-based platform that will ensure meaningful collaboration between professionals working towards novel solutions to housing issues.

Meanwhile, the Collaborative Housing Research Network for members of the academe and concerned communities is expected to promote in-depth housing research, both within and outside government auspices.
