right to home





Presented by: Canadian Urban Institute and The Shift

In partnership with: Aboriginal Housing and Mortgage Association, Architecture & Design Film Festival, BC Non-Profit Housing Association, Big Wheel Community Foundation & Big Wheel Burger, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness, Canadian Housing & Renewal Association, Canadian Human Rights Commission, Canadian Observatory on Homelessness, Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation, City of Victoria, Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada, Maytree, UDI Victoria

BC Non-Profit Housing Association is proud to be partnering with The Canadian Urban Institute, The Shift, and other national organizations for Right to Home, a week of virtual film screenings and live panel discussions from coast to coast about what’s working, what’s not, and what’s next, as we reimagine the right to home during and beyond the pandemic.

COVID-19 has exposed the vulnerabilities in Canada’s housing and shelter systems. As we rebuild our urban futures, we cannot risk going back to the way things were—our systems are on the brink of collapse. But they are also on the cusp of transformative change.

From July 25–August 2, Right to Home will host virtual film screenings of Us & Them and Push, and daily panel discussions about what we have learned during the pandemic, the threats on the horizon, and what we need to do differently moving forward.

Right to Home is virtual and free to attend.

Recordings and summaries will be available shortly after each event on the Canadian Urban Institute website and at the same link with the event information.
