Adam Vaughan webinar recording available online

The recording of our popular webinar held last week with Adam Vaughan is now available online.

Adam Vaughan is the MP for Spadina-Fort York and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. As such, he is one of the key architects behind Canada’s new National Housing Strategy. He is also a very strong advocate for co-operative housing.

Among several important topics he touched upon in this one-hour webinar, Vaughan said that eligible Section 95 housing co-ops will be hearing from CMHC about the 2018 subsidy extension in the next couple of weeks.

Asked by CHF Canada Director, Strategic Affairs Tim Ross about the potential for more co-op housing development, Vaughan said that co-ops should get into “build mode” and pitch for as much of the new federal funding as possible. “Co-ops don’t have to replicate the previous model,” he added. “We’re diversifying the toolkit and the financial supports to make a whole new generation of opportunities materialize.”

CHF Canada thanks Adam Vaughan for this open and helpful discussion with housing co-op members and supporters.
