Tuesday, June 27th!

22 June 2017



The City-Region Studies Centre is looking forward to their upcoming RPSS event. They will be hosting a stakeholder-led conversation to help identify forthcoming challenges and opportunities for addressing social and affordable housing needs, and to identify pathways for success.


On the evening of June 27th Dr. Kevin Jones will be chairing a panel discussion to address questions such as:

- How can design and planning ensure affordable housing is integrated within and supportive of all residents in a community?
- How can communities engage and inform affordable housing developments in their own neighbourhoods?
- In a diverse city-region, how can affordable housing needs be coordinated across the municipalities and communities?

Panelists include:

- Carola Cunningham, Executive Director Niginan Housing Ventures;
- Greg Dewling, CEO, Capital Region Housing;
- Kim Petrin, Chair Lendrum Affordable Housing Panel & Senior Associate, Community Development, Stantec;
- Jay Freeman, Executive Director, Housing and Homelessness, City of Edmonton
