Webinar Overview:
If you work in the realm of affordable housing, this webinar is for you!  Local government planners, housing providers and housing consultants, join us as we revisit planning practices and review policies, programs and tools to support affordable housing in your community.

  • Find out what programs are available in Canada’s National Housing Strategy;
  • Learn about a recently developed toolkit for local governments interested in the regulation of short-term rentals in their communities;
  • Discover Kelowna’s concept of the “Housing Wheel” and why we need to think about housing in a different way from the traditional view of homeownership as the final objective;
  • And much more!
