PHRN Research Repository

Much research is taking place in BC on housing. Additionally, national research can have implications for BC initiatives. On this page you will find both research by our network partners and research that the PHRN is curating within four thematic areas. If you would like to submit research for Research Committee review and posting on this site, please send your information to: phrn@uvic.ca

The PHRN Research Repository collects, stores and makes available BC based housing related research. Research materials captured and stored in this open access platform will include links to published reports, open access journal articles, conference papers, research studies, symposia presentations, policy papers and other curated material. Through the research repository, the network is investing in public outreach to ensure that research results are known to, and inform, housing stakeholders across the province. The repository will also be available for national housing stakeholders with an interest in evolving BC based research. Research quality will be critical to the success of the repository, alongside accessibility of the knowledge produced.

The Research Repository has 4 main pillars :

  1. Homelessness
  2. Technical and Green
  3. Economic
  4. Aboriginal Housing
