What is affordable? What can municipalities and the non-profit sector do to help achieve affordability?
Housing affordability has been out of reach for many people living in our communities for a substantial period of time. A change to the status quo is necessary in order to develop a healthy economy where housing serves as a home and a place of shelter, not just an asset.
Join us from 12:30-2pm PST on November 16th as municipal leaders in the non-profit field discuss non-market solutions to the housing crisis. Past reports and webinars such as the Housing Needs Assessment, Drivers of Homelessness, and Tenant Displacement Protection will provide a base for much of the conversation.
Stick around for the last 30 minutes of the webinar for the Community Social Planning Council's AGM.
Speakers at the event will include:
- Jill Atkey, CEO of BC Non-profit Housing Association
- Kathy Stinson, CEO, Cool Aid Society
- Carolina Ibarra, CEO, Pacifica Housing
- Corinne Saad, Executive Director, Gorge View Society
