Build Together:

Strengthening the Community Housing Sector in Nova Scotia

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.
