Spotlight: Housing Innovation

Highlight your innovative solution for housing affordability with Evergreen.

Do you have an innovative housing affordability solution that’s ready to be accelerated or scaled? This demonstration showcase will catalyze action on exceptional contributions to affordable housing innovation across the country. Evergreen is seeking applicants to demonstrate their innovative housing solutions in a digital event series for innovators; an opportunity to showcase their work across the country, build their network and scale their initiative.

Successful applicants will:

  • Present their work in a virtual innovation showcase as part of Future Cities Canada: #UnexpectedSolutions
  • Participate in an immersive, hands-on scaling workshop, led by cross sectoral experts from across Canada
  • Develop connections with experts, innovators and leaders within Canada’s housing and urban sectors
  • Showcase their innovation in an e-booklet that will be shared on the Community Solutions Network portal

This innovation showcase is funded through the National Housing Strategy (NHS) Demonstration Initiative. The NHS is a 10-year $55-billion federal investment to give more Canadians a place to call home. The Demonstrations Initiative, one of the programs under the NHS, highlights innovative housing practices, technologies, programs, policies and strategies aiming to improve the performance, viability and effectiveness of affordable housing.

The deadline for applications is: October 4, 2020 by 5pm EDT. Click here to review the full eligibility and selection requirements for applications.
