What’s New in Housing in 2024!
February 8, 2024, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
You are invited to join Amy Tatterton of the Sinneave Family Foundation and Drewe Rowbotham of the Autism Housing Network of Alberta and Autism Edmonton for a candid discussion of emerging trends in housing for neurodiverse Albertans across the province.
Housing is front and center on the Nation’s agenda for public policy. Rural and Urban Albertans are struggling to afford rent or a mortgage. How can we advocate for more affordable housing?
Canada has legislated a need for a National Autism Strategy. How will this call to action affect housing for Autistic Albertans?
What tools and resources can Albertans expect to see which can help ease the difficulty in finding safe, affordable and appropriate housing?
Join us as we discuss the broad context of housing and how it might look for Albertans moving into 2024. Add your voice to the conversation, as together we are shaping public policy.
