Cities and regions across Canada share common challenges - access to affordable housing, sustainability and equitable distribution of services. How can Canadian governments, developers, planners, builders, investors and others work together to spur innovative approaches to housing? The Globe and Mail's National Housing Innovation Series, presented by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) will showcase new and emerging solutions to our country's housing crunch. Developed with input from The Keesmaat Group, the events - hosted in Toronto and Vancouver - will bring leading thinkers together to discuss how fresh approaches might be adapted to the Canadian context.
