Welcome to Housing Central, BC’s Affordable Housing Conference and home to the annual gathering of the BC Non-Profit Housing Association (BCNPHA), Co-op Housing Federation of BC (CHF BC), Pacific Housing Research (PHRN) and now the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA).

We’re excited to invite you to western Canada’s largest affordable housing conference with more than 1,100 delegates from across BC and Canada.

It’s been a big year for our sector. We have a real opportunity to fix our housing crisis and ensure that British Columbians from all backgrounds have a safe and affordable home. But solving the housing crisis requires big ideas and bold leadership.

That’s why we came together under the Housing Central banner — to strengthen the non-profit and co-operative housing sectors, and better advocate on your behalf with a clear vision and a long-term plan to address the growing backlog of affordable housing in every corner of our province.

The partnerships now being formed will help usher in a new era of affordable housing, one in which the community housing sector brings to the table its resources and expertise as equal partners with governments and the private sector.

After all, this is what Housing Central is about—bringing everyone together under a common cause. From the community housing sector, to all levels of government and mission-driven private sector organizations and financial institutions, we are strongest when we work together.

This year’s conference will not disappoint, with some of the world’s greatest minds in housing delivering 110 education sessions and 6 inspiring keynotes. Plus we have more opportunities for you to mingle and network, a new art expo on the last day of the conference and a more interactive tradeshow.

It’s also a landmark year for the presenters of Housing Central as we celebrate BCNPHA’s 25th year anniversary, CHF BC’s 35th and AHMA’s 20th. To recognize this milestone, this year’s Sector Supper has a special anniversary price for all members of the Housing Central partners.

Don’t miss out on this very special event. See you at Housing Central!
