HART has two stages. In our second stage (November 2021 to March 2023), we are working with 14 governments across Canada to roll out our methods nationally. We are adding an acquisitions assessment component to our land tool. We are developing a training course and a national database on housing needs. We are exploring policy implications of our findings.
