About the Centre
The Community Housing Transformation Centre works across Canada to ensure the transformation, sustainability and growth of community-housing services in order to achieve housing for all. We identify and facilitate the development of expertise, resources and promising practices for the sector. The Centre achieves its mission by helping community-housing providers (cooperatives and non-profit housing) and sector bodies (associations, federations, etc.) to find solutions to their financial and organizational challenges. To accomplish this, the Centre manages three granting funds totaling approximately $50 million.
The Centre is committed to Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Considering the significance of affordable and quality community housing and the need for leadership succession in Indigenous communities for the purposes of developing and maintaining quality affordable housing, the Centre is pleased to introduce a program for Indigenous Internship.
The program is aimed at refining skills, professional development, and knowledge of the community housing sector among early career professionals who identify as Indigenous. The objective is to encourage and nurture future Indigenous leaders in the community housing sector.
Applications will be sought from recent university or college graduates who are 30 years old or younger who identify as Indigenous and are interested in a career in the community housing sector, or, from those who are already working in the sector. The interns will be provided with guidance and support from a full-time Indigenous coach who has expertise in Canada’s community housing sector.
Each intern will be paired with one of the Centre’s Program Managers and will gain work experience assessing and overseeing project granting. The interns will also assist the Centre with program outreach, strategic initiatives, planning, and improvement in service procedures. Participants will have access to all educational content in which Centre participates, such as conferences and coursework.
