Centre staff at events across the country

by | Dec 9, 2022 | Centre News, Growth

It’s been a busy fall for Centre staff! From coast to coast, we’ve been attending events and meeting with people from across Canada’s community housing sector.

Here are some of the events we’ve taken part in:

ONPHA, November 3-5, Toronto, ON

We were happy to have a full room for our workshop Think Big: Impacting large-scale change through collaboration and innovation. Plancher, our project to mutualize and grow Quebec’s community housing sector, has sparked a lot of interest and great conversations nationwide.

To learn more about Plancher, visit our website and sign up for email updates (in French).

Housing Central, November 21-23, Vancouver, B.C.

Our workshop, Approaching housing acquisition, shared ideas from experts about how acquiring existing buildings can strengthen the community housing sector. Once again, we had the pleasure of making our presentation to a full house.

Innovative Approaches to Housing & Homelessness Conference, November 22, Saskatoon, SK

This conference allowed staff to connect with community housing staff from Saskatoon and across Saskatchewan. Thanks to Saskatoon Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) for hosting this event. We hope to be back in Saskatchewan soon!

PEI, November 16

Centre staff travelled to PEI to celebrate the work of the Community Seniors Co-operative, who are building 50 homes for seniors in O’Leary. In Charlottetown, we also met with BIPOC-USHR, Charlottetown Mutual Aid, the Community Sector Network of PEI, the Cooper Institute, Immigrant & Refugee Services Association, My Old Apartment, the Montague organization, the Native Council of PEI, the PEI Association for Community Living, the PEI Co-operative Council, PEI Family Violence Prevention Services, PEI Fight for Affordable Housing, Renting PEI, and Resource Abilities. In O’Leary, PEI, we met with Develop West Prince, and the Community Seniors Co-operative.

We look forward to continuing our work and grow our partnerships with the PEI community.

In the media

The Centre’s Executive Director, Stéphan Corriveau, was recently a guest on Radio-Canada’s Phare Ouest and Panorama.

Lisa Ker, the Centre’s Deputy Executive Director, appeared on a podcast episode about Indigenous people in housing. “Nos voix pour les toits” is produced by the Fédération régionale des OSBL d’habitation de la Montérégie et de l’Estrie (FROHME), and supported by the Centre’s Community-Based Tenant Initiative Fund.
