About the Project
If 2020 taught us anything, it is the importance of having a safe home.
Extension and the Community Housing Transformation Centre (the Centre) are working in partnership to engage with the community housing sector in Nova Scotia – to share successes, recognize strengths, address challenges and barriers, identify gaps, and discover new ways of working together for greater collective impact.
Based on the findings of this engagement process, we aim to define sector priorities and determine a sustainable model for moving forward in tandem. Learn more.
Do you work or volunteer in a non-profit or co-operative housing group in Nova Scotia? If so, you are invited to complete this 20-minute survey to describe your organization, share successes you have achieved, as well as ongoing challenges you face in your efforts to improve the availability of safe and affordable housing in Nova Scotia. By participating by May 1, you will be able to enter your name in a draw to win one of two $250 donations to a community housing group of your choice.
A core element of the Build Together project is a calendar of approximately 20 engagement sessions running from April 6 to 26, for non-profit and co-operative housing groups in Nova Scotia. Join us for a session by registering below.
