Détails de l'évènement

Brick by Brick has the great pleasure of inviting you to a day of discussion on the topic of innovation in affordable community housing for residents who face systemic discrimination in the rental market.

Brick by Brick (BxB) is a non-profit organization created in 2016 by community organizers and professionals of colour to respond innovatively to needs in affordable housing in gentrifying and multicultural Parc-Extension neighborhood from a social justice perspective. In 2019 BxB received financial support from CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) to document its model based on community bonds (a social impact investment product), community-based research, collaboration and solidarity, inclusive governance, as well as individual and collective creativity.

Following the workshops facilitated by BxB at the ‘From the Ground Up’ conference (spring) and the Planners Network Conference ‘Resisting Displacement and Dispossession’ (summer), this fall BxB will be sharing its preliminary research results (including focus groups with neighborhood residents and investors). The event also aims to bring together different actors who share common interests to talk about current innovative solutions. Join us at this unique event!

With guest speakers from East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative (Oakland, US), Parole d’excluEs (Montréal, CA), Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust (Toronto, CA), Tapestry Community Capital (Toronto, CA), and more!
