Five design circles, each addressing one identified core area of activity to catalyze affordable housing development in Ottawa have been convened.

Design Circles frameworkEach circle consists of two co-conveners, a liaison from the BtB Core Team, and 8–10 members. To the fullest extent possible, circle meetings will be held once a month through 2015, with additional sessions held as required. Circles are design bodies, focused on designing solutions for their facet of BtB for scale-up and implementation in the Ottaws community.
