Event Details: 

On Friday, April 27th from 9am to 1pm join us at 30 Rosemount Avenue, for an important community conversation organized by Healthy Transporation Coalition in partnership with City for All Women Initiative and the Somerset West Community Health Centre. Facilitation will be done by Alejandra Bravo, Director, Power Lab. Lunch is included.

We plan to focus the conversation on three important questions:

1) How can we encourage government, non-profit housing providers, and the private sector to build affordable housing** close to rapid transit?

2) What are Community Benefits Agreements, and how can they be used to ensure massive public infrastructure projects (such as Ottawa's $5 billion Light Rail Transit system) meet the community’s needs?

3) What do we want to collaborate on to ensure we use the opportunities of the upcoming provincial and municipal elections to win more support for these ideas?
