BC Housing would like to explore a collaborative ‘win-win-win’ initiative whereby tenants of social housing are supported to reduce energy, waste and/or increase their food security, a municipal partner makes progress towards achieving their community development and sustainability objectives in a particular neighbourhood, and non-profit partners can make their community more inclusive to all residents, including those living in social housing.
