CHIA Vic is hosting a masterclass, Approaches to growing social housing – what we can learn from Canada, that will look at creative ways parts of Canada have used to grow their social housing stock, including leveraging or stretching limited federal dollars.
It will cover targeted interventions by government, and successful community housing led-projects requiring minimal government funding. The masterclass will also identify a range of funding and financing products that have been helpful in getting social housing developments off the ground.
The masterclass will be presented by Steve Pomeroy, Principal, Focus Consulting Inc and Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Urban Research Education (CURE), Carleton University.
Steve will speculate on how some of the Canadian approaches might be adapted to help expand the community housing sector in Victoria.
