Attend a transformative two-day Symposium that will lead us to a new community-driven affordable housing solution, one that is full-spectrum and solves the housing crisis which our city is currently facing.

On Day 1, community leaders, connectors and advocates will be presented with ideas and tools that are available and in use across our country. We will ask ourselves, “What stands out, and what could potentially work for our city?”.

On Day 2, developers, social agencies, and senior government representatives from our community will identify the appropriate tools for Guelph and imagine into being an organizational group that can lead, own and most importantly, implement dynamic change.

ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM

Who is running this event?

This is a professionally facilitated event with collaborative-planning expert Dr. Rebecca Sutherns. It is hosted by Habitat for Humanity WDG on behalf of our entire community. 

Who should attend?

From those interested in homelessness, to those who are looking to support affordable and/or market-priced rentals or homeownership,and to those who are simply interested in the future of our city, your voice matters. You have a place at this table.

Should I attend just one day, or both?

That’s up to you! Day 1 is for inspiration, where you’ll hear from leaders who have made an impact in Canadian cities. Day 2 will be focused on application, where a working group of developers, social agencies and senior government representatives willdevelop a Guelph-specific plan that will be put in place solve our city’s housing crisis.

We can pave the way towards an affordable city for all.
