About Congress

Congress is an exceptional opportunity to gather, learn and network with a growing Canadian body of practitioners, policy makers, front-line workers, government officials and key stakeholders in our sector. We expect to welcome over 550 delegates from across Canada and internationally. 

We’re developing a unique program with over 40 workshops, plenaries, workshops, mobile tours and keynotes to meet the educational needs and interests of our members and participants from across the non-profit, social and affordable housing and homelessness community.

More details are available on our website. Check back often as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.
