        Stories of Home: Presented as part of National Housing Week 2017

What does it look like to create a world where everyone has a home? Many of us have struggled to find a home in the current real estate market and even more of us have struggled to feel at home even when there is a roof over our head.

Evergreen, Centre for Social Innovation and The Stories We Don't Tell are coming together in honour of National Housing week to host a conversation about housing and home. We asked six different inspiring people to explore the idea of what home is to them and to tell us about their journey in finding it. Storytellers will include Jesse Thistle, Sage Tyrtle, Claire-Hélène Heese-Boutin, Roz McLean & Andreas Kalogiannides.

Thank you to our Media Partner NOW Magazine for their support.

About National Housing Week

National Housing Week is a moment for Canadians to come together and acknowledge that save, affordable housing is an integral part of strong livable communities. For the third year in a row, Evergreen is working with partners in the GTA to raise the profile of important housing issues that affect us all. By working with a wide range of private, non-profit and public partners, the flurry of activities throughout National Housing Week will engage different audiences, the public, the media and housing stakeholders to raise the collective profile of housing issues and catalyze action toward innovative change.

This year we are anticipating the announcement of Canada’s first National Housing Strategy and believe it is more important than ever to be talking about the issues that affect us all.
