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.

If 2020 taught us anything, it is the importance of having a safe home. We at StFX Extension, in partnership with the Community Housing Transformation Centre (the Centre), are pleased to announce the launch of “Build Together: Strengthening the Community Housing Sector in Nova Scotia”.
Building on the work started last year with a people’s school on affordable housing focused on building awareness and inspiring action and a community think tank about housing needs, a recent people’s school explored ways to build the research capacity of community groups to provide evidence about local needs and support their housing goals.
The StFX Extension Department, in partnership with the Strait Richmond Housing Group, and the Antigonish Affordable Housing Society, will co-host a People’s School on Housing Needs: From Research to Action on May 11, 2019 in Port Hawkesbury.
