CMHC is the federal government's housing agency which provides support for Canadians in housing need and offers objective housing research and advice to governments and consumers.

As the Government of Canada's national housing agency, CMHC plays a major role in Canada's housing industry by helping Canadians live in safe, secure homes.

CMHC has information on housing design, technology and home adaptation, including "flex housing' which is a design that allows the features of a house to change to accommodate a person's changing abilities.

CMHC has information on affordable housing programs across Canada.

CMHC also provides funding for home renovations for Aboriginal Peoples living on reserve. The funding is for rehabilitation of substandard housing, modifications for persons with disabilities, adaptations for seniors, and renovations to shelters for victims of family violence.
