Future of Island non-profit housing up for debate this weekend

The B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association is hosting a Regional Education, Networking and Tradeshow

Non-profit housing groups across Greater Victoria are gathering tomorrow and Friday to discuss the future of housing on the Island.

The B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association is hosting a Regional Education, Networking and Tradeshow (RENT) to better connect non-profits with available services, said executive director Tony Roy.

“The (conference) will offer a space for non-profits to build relationships with each other on a regional basis as well as meet local private sector suppliers,” Roy said.

“The RENTs are part of a major expansion of our education programs to help our members around a variety of issues including financial planning and oversight, energy efficiency, and tenant relations.”

Similar events will take place June 19 in Prince George and Sept. 18 in Kelowna, in the lead-up to the B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association’s annual conference in November, where more than 800 delegates are expected.

The conference takes place April 10 and 11 at the Coast Harbourside Hotel and Marina. For more information or to register for the event, visit bcnpha.ca.
