Social Finance and Affordable Housing
There is certainly a buzz in government circles across the country about the potential of social finance. This week, the Social Innovation Generation (SiG) at MaRS team was invited to present at an engaging Lunch and Learn session with representatives from the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH). The session was led by Sumera Nabi, Senior Policy Advisor in the Housing Policy Branch at the Ministry, who presented an insightful and in-depth overview of social finance. The one hour discussion featured excellent questions and valuable perspectives from committed and experienced public servants working in affordable housing.
Check out the presentations below from the SiG team members who presented at the session on topics related to Social Finance and Affordable Housing. It is exciting to open a dialogue on the application of social finance in an area that could have tremendous positive impact for Ontarians currently living in poverty.
