Sustaining Canada's Future.



This session will focus on the development and financing of the Region of Peel's Housing Master Plan which, when fully funded and implemented, could result in the development of more than 5,650 new affordable rental units, including 226 supportive and 60 emergency shelter beds. The plan maximizes the housing potential of 31 sites in the Region of Peel land and Peel Housing Corporation property portfolio. Recently, Peel reached an agreement with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation for up to $276.4 million in federal funds to develop 2,240 of these units and beds by 2028.
Join leading experts and practitioners for an engaging and informative panel discussion on important housing and planning topics and issues. Moderated by Dr. Ren Thomas RPP, MCIP, panelists will tackle some of the most complex and urgent issues related to planning, homelessness, and affordability with a focus on innovative ideas and solutions.

This presentation is a comprehensive overview of the current policies and actions plans at all levels of governance (Federal to Municipal) to mitigate the affordable housing crisis in British Columbia, specific to the affordable rental and subsidized housing sector. The work uses the 'Housing for All' framework to propose a shift in the value paradigm of the housing sector, apply system thinking for an integrated approach in the existing system, and propose economic sustainability across the lifecycle of the affordable housing projects. 
The British Properties neighbourhood located in the Distric of West Vancouver, British Columbia , historically placed restrictive covenants on residential parcels which forbid sales of lands to persons of certain races.  For generations, it was illegal for anyone of "African or Asiatic descent" to own a home in this area. To determine the specfic impacts, Julia Tippet, Laura Clark, Annie Girdler, and Skye Bell conducted a literature review, which revealed that racial restrictive covenants are among the multiple ways legalized power perpetuates white supremacy. The student researchers recommend, through this presentation, to respond with acknowledgement of racism and complicity, genuine apologies, and ally-ship. Addressing racism and its remnants in community policies and planning is essential for developing holistic equtiy-building strategies. 
PLACE is a national planning and geography conference that takes place every fall. Every year, a group of students organize PLACE, bringing together like-minded students, professionals, and others from across Canada to present research and discuss topics in geography and planning. 

This year, PLACE 21 was offered virtually, organized by VIU Masters student volunteers, and hosted by the Canadian Institue of Planners on their GoTo Webinar platfrom.
