Tackling the Housing Challenge in New Brunswick

Housing Availability Shrinks as New Brunswick's Population Continues to Grow

New Brunswick’s population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. For many local governments facing housing shortages, the journey to getting homes built quickly can be daunting.

With experience supporting local governments across Canada, our advisory experts can help you build the right type of housing for your community.

Alberta Town Secures Grant Through CMHC's Rapid Housing Initiative

In early 2022, The Town of Hinton successfully secured a $2.3 million grant through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI) , which has enabled the completion of the Boutin Lands modular housing project, offering 10 new affordable rental units in Hinton.

These units comprise a mix of single and two-bedroom accessible modular homes, ranging from 560 sq. ft. to 790 sq. ft., all located on town-owned lands. The development provides housing for a diverse range of vulnerable populations experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless. The project was successfully completed within budget, even though it went past the original due date due to the Alberta Wildfire in the region. All 10 rental modular units are now occupied.
