Brief
The project aims to build capacity within the organization so that it can continue to strengthen the student community housing sector and build more housing for this clientele. As a first step, the project will share the knowledge and expertise gained through existing student housing initiatives, like the Woodnote Cooperative via a guide explaining how to develop new projects. Secondly, the project aims to mobilize stakeholders through a series of workshops conducted in all regions of Quebec where there is a post-secondary student population. Ultimately, these efforts will make it possible to see the emergence of a multitude of local projects across Quebec and to raise the necessary funds for feasibility planning through the financial participation of student associations and possibly other partners.
