BtB is Ottawa’s Innovation Lab for Affordable Housing

What is an innovation lab?

Labcraft defines an innovation lab as:

…a unique kind of laboratory – one that creates a dialogue, listening carefully with an open mind to all the voices, and then tries to translate them, mix them, and amplify them to prototype and develop alternatives.

This virtual innovation lab is the central space for dialogue and testing of new and innovative approaches to affordable housing development in Ottawa.

Here we’ll share with you learned best practices for catalyzing affordable housing development in Ottawa and in other jurisdictions and ideas and information about affordable housing development issues from experts in the field and from those developing affordable housing.  Bookmark this page and check back often or follow us at @btbottawa to receive the latest updates to this space
