The Montreal Indigenous community NETWORK has shared the Indigenous Ally Toolkit. With the intention to explore “the role that an individual occupies and plays within the collective experience,” the toolkit is an important resource to educate non-Indigenous allies while demystifying allyship and what it entails. This resource was created by The Montreal Indigenous community NETWORK.
The study by the Wellesley Institute highlights the stark disparities in eviction filings across Toronto prior to COVID-19. Eviction filing rates were twice as high in neighbourhoods where more low-income renters live. Independent of this association, we also find that Toronto has a racialized eviction problem. Black Torontonians may be at increased risk of eviction.
In the shared culture manifesto, a focus is given to the Seven Sacred Teachings of the Grandfathers that provide insight into the values held by the organization: honesty, wisdom, courage, humility, love, respect and trust.
Self-Assessment Tool for Transformation
Participate in a Community Housing Survey to Help us Transform the Sector
The Centre is conducting a survey, sponsored by the National Housing Strategy, to assess the well-being of Canadian community housing. The survey aims to reach smaller and medium-sized non-profit, co-operative, and Indigenous housing organizations who provide housing to thousands of Canadians.
As of summer 2020, we ask all community housing providers to share their feedback! Results will be available in January 2021 and shared with the community housing sector. The survey is being implemented by Ruth Chamberland, Dr. Patricia Streich, and Dr. Ted Harvey of SPR Associates. You are Canadian community housing provider? Please participate in our survey to help us improve as a sector to obtain affordable housing for all.
Our Resource Inventory is a growing database of resources and services designed by and for the community housing sector. You can do your search using the drop-down list of categories, subjects and others, or by using text or date search. If you offer services or resources related to community housing, contact us to advertise them for free here on the site.
