Minister Manley Announces CMHC Housing Research Grants

OTTAWA, Ontario, February 7, 2002 — Twenty-four Canadian researchers will be awarded up to $20,000 each under Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's (CMHC), External Research Program (ERP), the Honourable John Manley, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Crown Corporations announced today.

"The External Research Program encourages Canadians to conduct research into important issues affecting Canadian housing," said Deputy Prime Minister Manley. "The quality of proposals, in response to this competition, is truly impressive."

The ERP grants, which this year total $460,502, encourage private and non-profit sector researchers, as well as those employed in academic institutions, to put forward their ideas for investigation on housing issues. CMHC will publish the results when the studies are completed.

Successful applicants will carry out research projects in several priority areas, including: making housing more affordable, addressing Aboriginal housing needs, addressing distinct housing needs, advancing Healthy Housing, helping Canadians protect their investment in housing, improving building performance, exploring housing trends, and improving housing finance and market effectiveness.

Recipients of the External Research Program grants were selected by a national committee of housing experts, on the basis of merit and the quality of their proposals. The committee includes experienced researchers and practitioners in government, academic institutions, housing related professions, and business.

Results of a wide range of housing research, sponsored by CMHC, may be obtained from:
