OTTAWA, ON, May 14, 2024 /CNW/ -Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) today launched the annual Awards for Excellence in Housing Research competition. Improving the financial viability and sustainability of affordable housing in Canada is the theme chosen this year for the Presidential Medal for Outstanding Housing Research.

The Housing Research Excellence Awards recognize Canadian researchers for their significant and innovative achievements in the areas of housing research, research training, knowledge mobilization and outreach. This initiative helps strengthen and maintain the culture of knowledge in the research-based housing sector that we observe in Canada in key areas including social sciences and humanities, health and technology. The Awards recognize outstanding work in housing research and provide monetary awards to help project teams advance research, knowledge mobilization and awareness. CMHC administers this program on behalf of the Government of Canada as part of the National Housing Strategy (NLS).

Applications will be reviewed by a group of specialists including representatives from academia and the private, non-profit and public sectors. Winners are selected based on a rigorous set of criteria. We seek to determine the projects most likely to produce the data and information decision-makers need to improve housing affordability and better meet the housing needs of Canadians.

Three prizes are awarded each year:

  • CMHC President’s Medal for Outstanding Housing Research 2024 theme: Improving the financial viability and sustainability of affordable housing in Canada – $25,000
  • Roof Price gold for excellence in housing research – $12,500
