CMHC has just launched the Housing Supply Challenge! With $300M of funding up for grabs, this initiative invites citizens, stakeholders, and experts from across Canada to propose innovative solutions to the barriers that limit the creation of new housing. Through the launch of a number of unique rounds, the Challenge aims to address obstacles to housing supply and affordability, enhance community engagement, cultivate collaboration and partnerships, and inspire others to scale or adapt ideas for “Canada-wide impact”. Attend this session to find out how you can participate and take advantage of this exciting initiative. For more details on the Challenge, visit

Sarah is the senior specialist (program oversight) for the forthcoming Housing Supply Challenge in the Policy and Innovation sector at the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
