Safe, affordable, healthy housing

the research network
What is CHEC?
The Canadian Housing Evidence Collaborative (CHEC) is the knowledge mobilization hub for the Collaborative Housing Research Network, a pan-Canadian, cross-sectoral network dedicated to providing the evidence needed to meet the goals of Canada’s National Housing Strategy.
Teams across Canada are engaged in cutting edge housing research on thematic nodes. We help get that academic research into the hands of people who can put it into action.In support of the National Housing Strategy we:
- Connect policy makers, researchers, housing providers and people with direct experience of where the housing system is not working
- Identify research priorities
- Facilitate access to housing data
- Build Canada’s housing research capacity
The Five Nodes of Research
What might the 2021 Census let us know about housing need and the progress under the National Housing Strategy?
Recently, almost everyone in Canada received the federal census document in our mail, and hopefully all did our civic duty to contribute to this important and comprehensive data set that informs much research and policy development.
