Brief
As the Manitoba government is contemplating different scenarios on the future management of its 13,000 strong social housing portfolio, the community housing sector is building a constructive and comprehensive proposal that would ensure the preservation and expansion of this valuable housing stock to the benefit of the entire community. The Manitoba Non-Profit Housing Association and the Cooperative Housing Federation of Canada (CHF Canada) as well as key community housing stakeholders of the province are coming together to imagine a future where community controlled assets are managed in a sustainable way. This collective brainwork includes finding ways of leveraging this substantial portfolio as a tool of regional development and a means to ensure growth for the sector in times when the need for affordable housing is far from being satisfied.

Partners

SAM Management Inc. and Ten Ten Sinclair Housing Inc. are two community housing providers.
The Cooperative Housing Federation of Canada is a partner on the project.
Manitoba Housing and CMHC will also be invited to participate on the project team.
