Who we are
The Housing Assessment Resource Tools (HART) project is funded by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to research data-based solutions to Canada’s housing crisis.
Through the National Housing Strategy (2018) and National Housing Strategy Act (2019), the federal government has committed to progressively realize the right to adequate housing for everyone in Canada with an emphasis on the needs of the most marginalized populations. Without simple, robust, equity-focused, comparable, and replicable housing needs assessments at all levels of government, it is impossible to set meaningful housing targets, or measure progress. The goal of the HART project is to develop standardized, replicable and equity-focused tools, along with associated public information and training, to improve the quality of housing supply decision-making at all levels of government across Canada.
What we do
Our suite of tools
HART provides a comprehensive data-driven analysis of housing need at a granular level, as well as responsive, sustainable solutions that will improve the quality of housing supply decision-making at all levels of government. We aim to help governments, the housing sector, and the public better understand the needs of their communities.
