Two interconnected sub-themes guide our research: reshaping financialization of housing and innovating in responsive land practices.

In order to build a resilient housing system for Canada that redefines the place of housing in economic growth and sustainability strategies, we will investigate how to reshape the financialization of housing and land practices through a variety of policy levers and incentives that will allow for a more equitable distribution of housing resources. Our research will use an intersectional lens, shaped by the interaction of power dynamics related to class, race, sex/gender/sexuality, faith, newcomer status, indigenous status, age, etc. when investigating sources of the current housing challenges, and researching potential solutions.
