Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC)
Canada's Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) is the Government of Canada's national housing agency, helping Canadians gain access to a wide choice of quality, affordable homes.
"Committed to housing quality, affordability, and choice for Canadians"
CMHC is a leader in housing that meets or exceeds client expectations through quality service and world class products. Success is achieved through CMHC employees who are valued and respected as individuals and recognized for their contribution.
This vision will be realized through four key pillars:
CMHC ensures availability, accessibility and choice of housing funding to Canadians by being creative, competitive and effective.
Research and Information Transfer
Canada is recognized worldwide for the high quality of its housing. One reason for this is CMHC's commitment to research to help Canadians understand and improve the technical, economic, environmental and social aspects of housing. CMHC is constantly looking for better ways to meet Canadians' housing needs of today and tomorrow.
Canadians expect their homes to be energy-efficient, comfortable, durable, and affordable. CMHC research aims to improve housing and support the housing market by being the key Canadian source of reliable and objective housing information.
CMHC participates in assisted housing initiatives as directed by the federal government with ongoing responsibility for federal social housing funding. In particular, CMHC supports aboriginal communities in their efforts to become self-sufficient in developing and maintaining their housing.
CMHC supports and promotes the export of Canadian housing products and expertise by identifying market opportunities and providing practical information and advice to the housing industry.
