Senior Oriented Housing and Research Opportunities in Canada’s National Housing Strategy

Overview

The federal government recently announced a National Housing Strategy which is a 10-year, $40-billion plan to help Canadians with distinct housing needs, including seniors; veterans; persons with disabilities; indigenous peoples; women and children fleeing family violence; and those dealing with mental health and addiction issues. The National Housing Strategy also includes a commitment to enhance housing research, data and demonstration functions.

Learn about the National Housing Strategy funding and support for seniors-oriented housing, as well as the suite of research programs and supporting activities that will be delivered by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation in partnership with organizations like SSHRC, NSERC and CIHR.
