The Office of Housing and Construction Standards invites you to: Social Return on Investment in Housing Webinar
Join us for a webinar on Mar 14, 2017 at 1:30 PM PDT.
The BC Office of Housing and Construction Standards (OHCS) is hosting a webinar on affordable housing.
Since 2013, OHCS, in collaboration with its partners, has delivered webinars on affordable market housing. These webinars provide a provincial forum for sharing knowledge and experience on affordable market housing. In recognition of the important role social and near-market housing have in providing sufficient affordable housing, OHCS is expanding its affordable housing webinar series beyond just market housing. Webinars on non-market housing are intended to compliment – not replace – webinars on affordable market housing. This is the first webinar in the expanded affordable housing series.
This webinar will highlight the social and economic value created by affordable housing investment in BC. Presenters will discuss the results of a study commissioned by BC Housing that used the internationally standardized Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology to demonstrate the value created by affordable rental housing investment. The webinar will explain the SROI methodology, its benefits, and application in the study. It will also showcase two affordable rental housing developments in Victoria that were part of the study.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
