CMHC transforms its technology to help more Canadians secure a place to call home

Business Situation

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) is a Crown corporation that operates in mortgage loan insurance, assisted housing, securitization and policy and research. With custom-developed, siloed technology and islands of data throughout the organization, workplace efficiency and effectiveness became a challenge. The company wanted to modernize and change the way it worked by embarking on a digital transformation.


Drawing on our expertise across the full suite of Microsoft technologies, Avanade helped modernize the CMHC workplace by building a new, secure infrastructure on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. We also introduced new collaborative tools, including Microsoft Office 365 and Skype for Business. In transforming the company’s ERP and CRM systems, we helped build out CMHC’s business solutions to better serve its clients.


The new platform allows employees to add more value to their jobs and spend less time moving paper or data information around. With a modern workplace, employees no longer struggle with the company’s systems and can focus on what matters – helping Canadians find a secure place to live.
