Student Challenge Winners Bring Innovative Ideas to Creating Affordable Rental Housing in Canada

10/10/2018

With innovative and fresh approaches to create more affordable rental housing in the country, the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister Responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, announced the winners of the Innovation Fund Student Challenge.

Three teams have been selected as winners earning the full award of $10,000:

  • The Beaver – York University
  • Compact Homes: Innovative Solutions Solving the Affordability Challenge – Queen’s University
  • The Jetty: An Affordable Housing Cooperative – Dalhousie University

The Beaver – York University

Michael Kenny, Bria Hamilton, Allison Evans, Helen Lam, Jane Bae

The Beaver Co-op is a proposed 12-story affordable rental apartment building that incorporates an innovative building technique and cost-saving measure through the use of mass timber construction in affordable housing, which is still relatively new to the sector. Passive design and green technology are incorporated to minimize waste and energy usage. The financial innovation stems from the multi-stakeholder community development approach that aims to generate financial support via community bonds, union pension funds, and credit unions.

Compact Homes: Innovative Solutions Solving the Affordability Challenge – Queen’s University

Lindsay Allman, Andrew Eberhard, Gabrielle Snow, Peter Huan

The Compact Homes project proposes an innovative Tiny Home Community that seeks to leverage existing programs and lands to produce single occupant, rent geared to income units, and can be constructed to meet stringent accessibility and environmental efficiency requirements.

The Jetty: An Affordable Housing Cooperative – Dalhousie University

Juniper Littlefield, Mitch Gold, Lina El-Setouhy, Chloe Espiard

The Jetty Affordable Housing project proposes a housing cooperative operated in partnership with local post-secondary institutions, targeting the student population with recycled shipping container apartments, as well as providing additional housing for seniors, singles and families.
