Join us as we celebrate Canadian Housing and Renewal Association’s 50th Anniversary in Ottawa from April 24 – April 27, 2018

The CHRA Congress on Housing and Homelessness provides an exceptional opportunity to meet collectively and exchange learnings and ideas from a growing Canadian body of practitioners, policy makers, front-line workers, government officials and key stakeholders within our sector.

The 2018 Congress in Ottawa will be CHRA’s 50th Anniversary. It will convene over 500 delegates and sector leaders from Canada and other countries for four days of learning and networking opportunities. Coming on the heels of the National Housing Strategy, Congress 2018 will be an opportune time to learn and influence the development of this key initiative.

Each year CHRA develops a unique program of over 40 concurrent workshops, plenary and learning sessions, mobile tours and keynotes to meet the educational needs and interests of our members and participants from across the affordable housing and homelessness community.
