CMHC 2006 Housing Awards

Human Resources and Social Development (HRSD), today announced the 16 winners in Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's (CMHC) Housing Awards Program, which recognizes housing initiatives that have contributed to improving the affordability of housing.

The Housing Awards both acknowledge significant accomplishments inhousing, and encourage the sharing of best practices to foster affordable, quality housing in Canada.

This year's Housing Awards, under the theme, "Best Practices in Affordable Housing", is the ninth since the program's inception in 1988. The competition was open to both groups and individuals in the public and private sectors. The 16 winners were chosen by an independent multi-disciplinary selection committee comprised of housing experts from across Canada. An Awards Dinner was held today in Ottawa to honor the winners.
