Approaches to growing social housing – what we can learn from Canada

September 10 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

- $253 – $275

This masterclass will look at creative ideas that have been used in the Canadian context to grow the stock of social housing, including how they leveraged or stretched the limited federal dollars available.

We 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.

Steve Pomeroy will speculate on how some of the Canadian approaches might be adapted to help expand the community housing sector in Victoria.
