The Opening Doors Conference provides an opportunity for housing professionals and stakeholders from across Alberta to gather and discuss new and emerging trends and topics in the housing sector and engage in a day of training and networking.
Featuring two keynotes, guest emcee, television host and entertainer Dave Kelly, six breakout sessions and opportunity for networking and to explore our trade show of partners – this is a conference you won’t want to miss!
Morning Keynote: The Executive Director for the Canada Housing and Renewal Association, Jeff Morrison, will join us to discuss the tremendous amount of work that is being done within CHRA in research, policy and advocacy to ensure that all Canadians can access and afford the type of housing they need.
Lunch Keynote: The Executive Director of the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, Jill Atkey, will share key advances in the BC non-market housing sector in recent months. Jill led the development of the Canadian Rental Housing Index and oversaw the 10-year Affordable Housing Plan to solve our BC’s housing affordability and homelessness crisis, which informed a $7-billion provincial investment in affordable housing in BC.
Learn from both our keynotes how a strong common voice for the sector has been created through collaboration between non-profit housing organizations, by sharing resources and aligning advocacy.
