Inclusive Housing: Supporting Diversity

Inclusive housing is a key component of healthy, vibrant neighbourhoods where all members of our community feel welcome. BCNPHA is again partnering with Community Living BC to offer specialized education sessions for our members and other housing stakeholders to better understand the importance of inclusive housing and the benefits it can bring.

These sessions will go beyond the basics of inclusive housing to explore collective challenges like housing for those with multiple barriers, and action-focused sessions on how to forge partnerships that create and support effective inclusive housing projects. Hear from diverse tenants about their lived experiences in inclusive housing, learn about the benefits of inclusive communities from the Institutes for Research and Development on Inclusion and Society, participate in an innovation lab for collective action, and join thought leader Al Etmanski, one of our keynote speakers, with a CLBC representative for an engaging dialogue on inclusive housing and the power of collective impact to realize social change.

Look for these inclusive housing sessions:
S02 The Case for Diversity in Communities and Housing
S25 Inclusive and Affordable Living, One Year In
M04 Partnerships to Support People with Multiple and Complex Needs
