The goal of this series is to equip residents and community organizers with the skills and knowledge to effectively interact with key decision-makers in housing development, including government officials, developers, and influential community leaders. Residents will gain the ability to champion affordable housing construction and policies that promote more affordable homes in their neighborhoods.
Roadmap Connect builds on the Infrastructure Institute’s SPRE mentorship programs and CP Planning's Roadmap for Redevelopment Plans to Confront Systemic Racism to provide targeted support to facilitate non-profits led by racialized people to successfully pursue and implement affordable housing development programs.
The Organizational Readiness Program is a 6-week program for organizations seeking support with an assessment of their “readiness” to develop a project. This program is conducted in partnership with the Infrastructure Institute of the University of Toronto. This program builds on the years of experience of the Institute in delivering mentorship to non-profits interested in developing their real estate to advance their social mission.
