Impact Investing for Affordable Housing Projects 

The focus of this session was to explore innovative approaches to financing moderate to middle-income affordable housing projects. The session has a focus on impact investing, what it is, and the challenges and opportunities. Vancity discussed their approach to impact investing through supporting community partners and as investors in affordable housing projects. Katrina May spoke to her research in looking at how private capital can bridge the financial gap for these projects, and particularly what she found in documenting Catalyst Community Development’s Society’s alternative financing strategy. And, Vivacité Solidaire presented their shared-equity program based on a social economy model that leverages impact investors.

Au-delà de la brique et du béton – Logements avec soutien communautaire

Social Housing in the New Climate – Building adaptive capacity and resilience of affordable housing

Communities across the country already face notable impacts from extreme weather events occurring with higher frequency and intensity than in the past.  With changing climate, heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, extreme precipitation and flooding, are projected to increase across the province of BC and the rest of Canada. How will affordable housing providers respond? 

This session will provide an overview of the impacts of these changes on social housing tenants, buildings and programs, using social housing in BC as a case study; and share existing practices and resources that can make the housing sector more resilient.

This session will explore the barriers to safe, secure and affordable housing for women and girls experiencing violence in BC and the Northwest Territories.  Speakers will discuss community partnerships, policy recommendations and unique opportunities for co-ops and non-profit housing providers to contribute with creative solutions for housing women fleeing violence.  As well, effective strategies in collaborating with private landlords in establishing opportunities for secure and affordable housing for women will be highlighted.

Importance of Place: Neighbourhood deprivation and segregation in Canada and the US

This session created a dialogue on actions that can create diverse, equitable communities and address neighbourhood deprivation and segregation. There was discussion around the efforts of the City of Portland to remedy historical policies that eliminated wealth from specific communities and how needs of the gentrified African American community are being addressed. In the Canadian context, meanwhile, discussion surrounded the stark economic and social deprivation in the de-industrial Cape Breton Regional Municipality. In the context of ‘neighbourhood disadvantage’ and the Housing First principle of ‘normal’ places to live, this part of the session looked at the location of the most affordable market rental units in the community in the context of deprivation, and also explored whether these are in areas with fewer amenities and services.

Towards Integrated Solutions to Youth Homelessness

There are many opportunities for implementing preventative youth homelessness policies and practices across Canada. Within the shift to prevention we must emphasize not only innovative programs and responses, but also bold and broad sweeping changes to public systems that can prevent young people from becoming homeless.

Two case studies of how Victoria, BC and St. Johns, NL are approaching a response to youth homelessness, have been profiled in this session. Unpacking the challenges/opportunities that come with legislation, policy, evidence based practice and system navigation will underpin the importance of an integrated response to youth homelessness.

Architectural Co-design – Emerging Best Practices for Indigenous Housing

Engagement and architectural co-design with Indigenous people is evolving toward more sensitive approaches and culturally appropriate and environmentally sustainable housing designs. This session showcased examples of Architectural Best Practices in Indigenous Housing Co-design both in urban communities and with First Nations. The panel of three included two leading architects – one Indigenous and one with experience designing in Indigenous contexts, along with the author of a groundbreaking report on collaborative co-design. Tangible benefits include housing designs that resonate with Indigenous families and communities and become a base for cultural reclamation and growth.

Housing in the North 

Often northern housing is characterized by stories from a deficit-based perspective. There is a lot to share about how northerners are working from strength-to-strength to solve problems.  This session highlighted how partnership and collaboration with  governments,  local non-government organizations and Indigenous groups as well as private industry are driving innovation and made-in-the North solutions.

Strong Organizations, Powerful Sector: Organizational capacity building for non-profit housing providers

Organizational capacity building seeks to develop and strengthen the skills, abilities, and resources that organizations need to survive, adapt and thrive. In this session, Scale Collaborative presented revenue diversification models, including various social enterprise models that housing and community organizations can explore. Fernwood NRG presented a case study that has successfully utilized property, affordable housing, social enterprises, fee for service and other revenue generation to revitalize and meet their neighbourhood needs. Delegates also heard from a network of housing providers in Ottawa who are developing a shared services model to help housing providers to collectively achieve efficiencies and cost-saving thereby maintaining long term sustainability of the housing stock.

Partnering for Tenants

This session presented three partnerships developed to support successes for tenants. In Regina, Ranch Ehrlo Society, Phoenix Residential Society, and three levels of Government, partnered to provide affordable housing to people with serious mental health issues allowing them to live independently. In Vancouver, two levels of Government, a health authority and streettohome, partnered to ensure supportive housing units are available to people most in need and that tenants who wish to live independently are supported to transition into appropriate housing. Finally, in Edmonton, Capital Region Housing partnered with Stuart Olson, and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology to introduce tenants to the construction trades through employment on the first redevelopment of social housing in the city.

Façonner l’ACHRU - Les commentaires des membres sur la prochaine planification stratégique

Le plan stratégique actuel, qui a débuté en 2016, se termine à la fin 2019. En décembre 2018, l’ACHRU tenait un sondage auprès de ses membres pour connaître leur avis sur ses orientations. Le conseil d’administration a utilisé ces commentaires pour commencer à élaborer le prochain plan d’une durée de 4 ans. Pendant cet atelier du congrès, les membres recevront une copie du projet et une mise à jour sur la réflexion autour de cette question. Ils pourront alors enrichir le travail et participer à un moment critique de la finalisation du document par le CA. Venez contribuer à créer le futur de l’ACHRU !
