Pacific Housing Research Network

Explore the latest research related to affordable and social housing in Pacific Housing Research Network (PHRN) sessions scheduled throughout the conference. The sessions feature panel discussions with leading researchers focusing on a broad range of issues within BC’s non-profit housing sector, and fall into four main pathways.

Inclusion and Engagement centres on ways we can connect with and include marginalized communities into our approaches to housing and homelessness.

In Housing Partnerships, learn about studies into how cross-sector partnerships succeeded in developing social housing, navigate the SRO renewal initiative and mixed-tenure redevelopment projects and discover how to share research within and outside the community.

The What Do People Want? session explores housing options for seniors, matching housing supply and demand and an evaluation of supportive housing.

Finally, dig into the nitty gritty of Data, Measures and Cool Maps with sessions that dissect the new strategies used for the 2017 Metro Vancouver Homeless Count, taking a new approach to  welling standards and what the data tells us about housing in Vancouver.

Visit and chat with members of the steering committee at the PHRN poster displays at the conference on Monday.
