Grow Your Housing Career With the Chartered Institute of Housing

What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you know about careers in housing? Many people join the housing sector from previous roles in planning, economics, social work, and other related fields. There are limited educational options at the post-secondary level to prepare for a career in housing. The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Canada captures the knowledge of the senior leaders in housing and creates an education pathway for people who “fell” into the housing sector and for people who are looking to enter the sector. This webinar will present CIH Canada and its role in the housing sector, and explore the program designations and course offerings!
