Webinars

Education partner logoThere’s no disputing that the non-profit housing sector has its hands full. On a daily basis, managers, tenant support workers, directors, and staff respond to every kind of challenge imaginable. It can be difficult to keep up with new information and ongoing training to stay equipped for these challenges.

That’s why BCNPHA is constantly looking for ways to offer accessible educational resources with new webinars! You can view the recorded webinars below. There is no shortage of topics we can add to our programs to complement our online courses and to respond to the needs of the sector.

Thank you to our Education Partners:
