M19: Tenant Relocation: Best Practices & Lessons Learned
This session is currently full. Sponsored by BC Housing
Multiple community stakeholders supported residents and campers during three major relocations: the Balmoral Hotel (June 2017), Surrey 135A Relocation (June 2018), and the Regent Hotel (June, 2018). Participants will explore topics including: multi-stakeholder teamwork; transparent messaging; solidifying partnerships; client-centred work during a large-scale relocation; and, best practices in tenant evacuation that are transferable to other communities. Representatives will share perspectives in an action-packed Pecha Kucha style to highlight the pace and complexities of such a project!
