In-person course

Join us on Monday, May 27, 2019 for a two-day intensive course in Toronto! 

Gain the confidence to dive into housing development and redevelopment with this in-person course tailored to community housing providers. A must for those looking to succeed in today’s social housing landscape and to capitalize on government funding.

Walk away with a deeper understanding of:

  • the development process for housing providers
  • evaluating the housing needs in your community
  • how to build a team and manage financial resources
  • entering and navigating the construction phase
  • successfully operating your new building

This course is designed to provide you with practical knowledge and give you a toolkit to help you get started on your own development projects. Plus, you’ll earn a certificate for successfully completing the course!

“Having this as an in-person course was very helpful. Networking was great. Being able to ask questions personally was very helpful. This was a great course and I would highly recommend it.” - 2018 Participant
