Research at the interface of housing, community, health, policy, and practice

The Canada Research Chair in Housing, Community, and Health is based at the Institute for Health and Social Policy and in the Department of Geography at McGill University. Led by Prof. Mylène Riva, the team’s research investigates housing as a social determinant of health. Research in the CRC examines housing conditions, interventions, programs, and policies, as well as the wider community context in which they are embedded for their health and well-being impacts in Inuit, First Nations, remote, rural, and urban settings.
