From the start, CCHT was built and is operated as a partnership between three arms of the Government of Canada: National Research Council Canada (NRC), Natural Resources Canada's CanmetENERGY and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). These agencies have signed an MOU on the construction and operation of the facility. Three committees oversee and set the research agenda for CCHT; the CCHT Steering Committee, the CCHT Business Committee and the CCHT Research Committee.
