Save the date – CHRA National Congress on Housing and Homelessness

Press Release

CHRA’s Congress on Housing and Homelessness is held each spring and gathers housing professionals from all over Canada and abroad for three exciting days of learning, networking, and celebrating the community housing and homelessness sector. Congress is an exceptional opportunity for housing professionals to meet and exchange knowledge with a growing Canadian body of practitioners, policy makers, front-line workers, government officials, and key stakeholders from the affordable housing and homelessness sectors. Each year we develop a unique program of workshops, plenary and learning sessions, mobile tours, and keynote sessions to meet the educational needs and interests of CHRA members and delegates from across the community housing and homelessness sector.
