CMHC Housing Supply Challenge

Housing Affordability Matters

Everyone in Canada deserves a home that they can afford and that meets their needs. However, many Canadians struggle to find, maintain and afford a good place to live. A lack of supply in cities with significant demand for housing can push prices up. The Housing Supply Challenge (Challenge) will result in new ideas and solutions that will help more people find an affordable place to call home.

Investing in Change

The Challenge is part of Impact Canada and is led by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), in collaboration with the Impact and Innovation Unit in the Privy Council Office and Infrastructure Canada. The Challenge will award $300 million in prizes over five years.

Shape the Challenge Design

We need your help to design a Challenge that will yield the most innovative, impactful and lasting solutions.
