Healthy Homes for Healthy Cities
- Date Updated: January 2021
This session was presented as part of Future Cities Canada: #UnexpectedSolutions.
Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO, Wellesley Institute; and Julia Deans, President & CEO, Habitat for Humanity Canada
Although research and lived experience consistently attest to the connection between good quality, stable and affordable housing and the health of its occupants, deficits in accessible and safe housing options continue to grow in cities across Canada. Join Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of the Wellesley Institute, and Julia Deans, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada, for a conversation on the wide ranging and deep impacts this deficit creates in some of Canada’s most marginalized communities, and where cities should go from here to begin alleviating this systemic issue.
