Web audience measurement and advertising targeting
Our website uses web analytics and ad targeting tools. You can find the full list below.
– Google Analytics 4
Google Analytics is a web analytics service that provides basic statistics and numerical analysis regarding traffic to the Community Housing Transformation Centre website.

A Meta Pixel and a LinkedIn Pixel are installed on the Community Housing Transformation Centre website for advertising purposes. These integrations enable us to better understand user interactions and behaviors between these two social platforms and our website.

Google Tag Manager bridges the gap between user actions and Google Analytics. This tool recognizes actions taken on the site and sends relevant anonymous data to Google Analytics.
