Too Much of a Good Thing: On Housing, Wealth and Intergenerational Inequity

Are Canadians over-housed? Evan Siddall, President of Canada and Mortgage Housing Corporation, will speak about the linkages between housing, personal savings and wealth, and how banking on ever-rising housing prices could undermine Canada’s  broader economic stability and well-being. Set with the context of historical long-term house price gains and intergenerational wealth differences, Mr. Siddall will also speak about the National Housing Strategy’s role in stimulating housing supply, getting better data and crafting housing policy that works for Canadians.

Evan Siddall
President & CEO, CMHC

Evan is President and CEO of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, a role he has held since 2014. Evan leads a team of housing experts who share a single mission: to help Canadians meet their housing needs. As CEO, Evan is especially passionate about growing leaders, and the merits of both a diverse and inclusive workforce and the mental health of his colleagues.
Evan and his executive team have led transformative change at CMHC — helping it regain ground as a high-performing, innovative, and ambitious organization with a vision of being at the heart of a world-leading housing system. CMHC has led the design of Canada’s first-ever National Housing Strategy, a Government of Canada priority that will benefit hundreds of thousands of Canadian families.
Evan worked at some of the world’s largest investment banking firms in Canada and the United States before joining the Bank of Canada in 2010. He also helped launch a private entrepreneurial venture, Side Launch Brewing Company, named 2016 Canadian Brewery of the Year.
He is an avid cyclist, a voracious reader, and a lifelong downhill skier. Evan wants to speak French better, lose his airline status, and one day write a book — in English.
