National Housing Week
As National Housing Week wraps up, we take a look back at Under Pressure: 5 Ideas for Housing Now. The panel discussion we hosted along with the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association and Cooperative Housing Federation Canada featured housing experts from diverse sectors contributing their top solution to the housing pressures we face today.

With over 200 people in attendance, we had a lively discussion moderated by our CEO, Dr. Kwame McKenzie, it was a successful and necessary conversation on housing now.

Thank you for everyone that joined us. We look forward to seeing you in 2019 for more events.
