There’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.

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.
