June 23, 2022

The presentation will highlight findings from a new CMHC report that establishes a benchmark for supply gaps at the Canada and provincial levels. It will provide needed insights to industry on where supply is needed the most to meet current and future housing demand. The presentation will also highlight how co-ordination between transit and land use policies can help fill some of these supply gaps. Contribution to affordability, suitability, economic inclusion and sustainability outcomes will also be discussed.
