Used around the world, mixed model development doesn’t just offer the promise of financial viability; it can also present an opportunity to reduce economic isolation and social exclusion – effectively serving as a platform for community development strategies. But how do you make it work here in Canada?

One of the chief goals of HPC is to support and promote innovation and creative approaches with regard to the future of affordable housing.  HPC’s major priority is to explore issues faced broadly by housing providers across Canada and to present options to develop new tools to drive business tra...
