We want to hear from you! With up to $80 million available in financial support, the third round of the Housing Supply Challenge is looking for your ideas and solutions to improve Canada’s housing supply chain in northern and remote regions. We’re aiming to improve the efficiency of the supply chain specifically in order to make building and maintaining housing in the north more affordable.

The Northern Access round is officially launching in February 2022. Sign-up today to be the first to know when additional details are available!

*With up to $300M of funding available, the Housing Supply Challenge invites applicants from across Canada to propose innovative solutions to the barriers that limit housing that is affordable. Through several unique rounds, the Challenge aims to address obstacles to housing supply and enhance community engagement, cultivate collaboration and partnerships, and inspire others to scale or adapt ideas for “Canada-wide impact”.
