Financing, Land and Organizational Capacity: Affordable Housing Development

Housing is a human right, enshrined in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, signed and ratified by Canada. And yet, many Canadians do not have access to housing they need at a cost they can afford. Executing affordable housing is contingent on three pillars: money to finance, land to build, and organizational capacity to action. As part of the CHRA Congress Session Series 2018, this paper expands on the workshop session ‘Financing, Land and Organizational Capacity: Affordable Housing Development’ which took place in Ottawa, on 26 April 2018 at the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association’s annual Congress on Housing and Homelessness.
