Webinar: Affordable Homeownership Partnerships with Habitat for Humanity Canada
October 21, 2015
Famous for their 'sweat equity' approach to homebuilding and interest-free mortgage payments, Habitat for Humanity Canada discuss partnership opportunities between non-profit housing providers pre- and post-expiry of social housing operating agreements to transition families into affordable homeownership.
We hear from regional Habitat affiliates from across Canada, including Habitat for Humanity Edmonton, who speaks to their partnership with Métis Capital Housing Corporation to transition five former rental properties post- expiry or federal operating subsidies into homeownership dwellings for Métis families under Habitat's unique Aboriginal Housing Program. We also discuss the land transfer and rehabilitation strategies use to turn a former military housing base into affordable homes for thirty-three low-income families with Habitat for Humanity Northumberland.
