Join Joshua Evans, assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, for the latest Science Connects Webinar as he examines various policy approaches to housing affordability.
Housing is a social determinant of health and a key ingredient in the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Moreover, housing, like education and health care, is now widely seen as a human right. Yet, a growing number of Canadians are regularly denied access to housing due to factors such as low income, racism and physical impairment. This is a fundamental injustice. How can we realign our housing system so that it promotes wellbeing and respects the right to dignity for all? This webinar will examine various policy approaches to housing affordability. Using examples from Edmonton, Alberta, it will emphasize the critical role of community housing in Canada’s current and future housing system.
