BtB Social Impact Innovation Charrette:

On June 10, 2016, more than 40 individuals from a broad spectrum of affordable housing development and public and private financing organizations met to explore opportunities and challenges for new and innovative financing mechanisms for affordable housing development in Ottawa.  Facilitated by the Social Impact Investment Design Circle Conveners, the event resulted in a rich and productive discussion as well as a commitment to meet again to explore and design ways to broaden the base of affordable housing financing to support affordable housing development in Ottawa.  Click here to read the summary of the discussions.

BtB Collaborative Projects

In March 2015, following a public “invitation to collaborate” submission process, BtB selected four projects to collaborate with in 2016.  Chosen for their ability to connect with innovative mechanisms and models for affordable housing development identified by the BtB initiative over the past year, these projects will serve as living innovation labs to test and create knowledge around how to identify and integrate new resources and partnerships for affordable housing development in Ottawa.

BtB will journey alongside the projects to identify and record project best practices and learning and share this knowledge with the larger community through this site.  Click here to read the announcement.
