Rapid Housing Initiative

What is the Initiative?

The Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI) provides funding to facilitate the rapid construction of new permanent affordable housing units for people and populations who are vulnerable and prioritized under the National Housing Strategy (NHS). The RHI takes a human rights-based approach to housing, with a focus on those in severe housing need and those experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

This initiative was originally announced on September 21, 2020, with a budget of $1 billion. Round 2 was announced on June 30, 2021, for an additional $1.5 billion. To date, over 10,000 affordable housing units have been funded. Through Budget 2022, the Government of Canada is investing an additional $1.5 billion
over two years, starting in 2022–23, to extend the Rapid Housing Initiative.

Previous builds from Paradigm were funded through the Rapid House Initiative.
