Our Strategic Plan
Our mission, vision and values sit at the heart of everything we do.
Our Aspiration : A Home for Everyone
Our mission at the Community Housing Transformation Centre is to transform the community housing sector in a long-lasting way. Part of this implies to improve existing solutions and create more affordable housing, tools, and shared expertise. Some of the Centre’s transformational impact should happen through our funding for transformative non-profit housing projects.
Supporting a resilient, growing, sustainable, and inclusive community housing sector.
- To connect and partner with sector, service, and community housing providers to facilitate sector-wide transformation.
- To fund, support, and build organizational capacity where gaps and needs exist.

We leverage our actions and the sector capacity through partnership.
We increase results and deliveries by being accessible to the sector and flexible in our operation.
We operate openly and honestly and are true to our mission and vision.
We deliver our services according to need.
